These are easy and tasty. I took them to a holiday party and they were gone before they hit the table! chilled them in the fridge and they rolled up quite easily. I will make these again.

These are so yum. Super sweet, like I had to chug a glass of milk after eating just one, but SO wonderful. My husband claimed most of the rest for himself. I think I'm in trouble. TIP: I chilled the balls for just a bit before dipping. I used toothpicks for dipping ease.

I was actually pleasantly surprised by how well these turned out - in the hand they are firm, and not at all sticky, but they have a nice chewy texture. I was a little worried that they would be too hard to bite but that was not the case! Mine never did reach the point where the mixture balled up around the spoon, but I took them off when it was sort of pulling up from the bottom of the pot and VERY hard to stir. Worked great!
