My oh my! These are a wonderful and light offering for dessert that even the person who declares they are "full" after the main meal can still partake. They do take a bit of preparation time but once they're in the fridge, you can forget them till you take them out. ***DO cover them to protect the cream in order to keep it soft until serving. Your guests (or family) will be so impressed with these gorgeous orbs of delight!

I made these for dessert on Mother's Day. They took no time at all, but I let my mother think I worked all day on them.
