Carefully mix together all of the ingredients. I say carefully because it’s easy to do a hard mix and all of the ingredients go flying out of the bowl.  So carefully mix everything together. Then you will put the mixture in the refrigerator for at least a half hour. You want these ingredients to bind together so it’s easier to make into balls.

So once it’s cooled down, roll into bite size balls! It’s as simple as that. You will want to keep these in the refrigerator for up to one week. Trust me — these won’t last a week. This mixture makes up to 20 balls depending on how big you make them. You owe it to yourself to make this recipe at least once to see how you like it!
