Holy Balls Batman! And that was a comment from the shy and humble. Added cayenne and was 5 stars good.

I must have used the wrong type of artichokes as I wasn't able to get them to mash up properly. I couldn't manage to get the balls to stay together. End result is a very tasty mess. I'd love it if you could add more detail to this recipe.

I served these last week as part of a multi course meal. Due to the very delicate flavor they were first after the peppermint tea. To dress them up I served them on top of butter lettuce with a small strip of red roasted red pepper on top. Forgot to take pictures. I really think that next time I want to spice these up a little.
