I have been looking for the recipe for years. We always had these little gems on Christmas when I was a kid in the 1950's . The woman that always made them has since passed away. Thanks so much. Maryanne

We had these for Christmas dinner and they are great. I added a 1/2 tsp. or cinnamon and placed a whole walnut on each Ball. Easy and fast and they were a hit
