|Am I the only one who thinks they look like animal leavings?|
I came across this recipe during an afternoon of Pinterest-ing. Yeah, it's a verb.
The recipe is very simple; beat the butter and sugar together, mix in the remaining ingredients, roll into 1" balls, and chill for half an hour. Melt 6 ounces of chocolate in a double boiler while the bites are chilling, then drizzle with melted chocolate.
Word to the wise: the original recipe claims to yield 24 1-inch bites. I used a melon-baller to help me roll mine and I got SEVENTY 1-inch bites! Yikes! My only advise is to share the wealth and freeze any surplus. It worked out great for me because I had the opportunity to give my better half these treats in celebration of our two-year anniversary. Te amo mi mundo!
