This receipe is quick and very delicious although i made it for me it was too much for me to eat alone. I took it to work and it sure was a big hit!
Loved the softness of it, but wow, that's a lot of butter. Even using reduced fat cream cheese, it felt a little decadent. Still, it was a great holiday party offering.
very easy and great for a christmas party! I found out you won't be able to shape it into round balls if you don't chill for at least 3 to 4 hours.
Very good flavor!
This is the perfect finger food for a party! It's so cute and oh so good!
