These lovely little balls always end up on my Christmas cookie platters. Pretty labor intensive to make, but so tasty. I get many requests for them each year.

This is time consuming but they are so good that they are worth the effort. My family loved these and they will be made for more than just holiday's. Thanks for the delicious recipe.
