Reviews for Mounds Balls
"Made these last yr they were great thanks for sharing"
"I just made this today. They look great and taste great! I got 45 balls out of the recipe! I'm going to drizzle white chocolate over the top yet to make them look extra special."
"I am a volunteer TOH field editor and make these candies every year for Christmas! My husband and I team up to make them and they are finished in no time! They truly deserve the 5 star rating!"
"Our supper club got together to make these. They were simple and fun to make, as well as to eat, especially when you accompany it with a glass of chocolate flavored red wine! Add an almond and it tastes remarkably like an Almond Joy"
"I made this candy for a sale we had recently. It's the best. Sold every piece I made and recieved several orders for Thanksgiving. I think this is one of the best candies I have made so far, and am planning to make plenty more of it. Thank you so much for the recipe."
