    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    These are an excellent staple to have; when you need a quick treat, just defrost a few of these balls. Aside from softening the sweet potato in the microwave, this recipe does not require you to do any cooking at all. It's a relatively simple recipe you can make that will provide with a big batch of treats that freeze well. The fresh fruits and/or vegetables are especially nutritious for your bird, and the cereal give the balls a pleasant crunch. Times and yield are approximate.

    1. 1
      Prepare the sweet potato by piecing it several times with a knife or food skewer, then place the potato in the microwave and cook it on high power for about 5-9 minutes, or until the potato is tender.
    2. 2
      Half way through the cooking, turn the potato over; when it is finished cooking, set it aside on a plate or other surface and allow it to cool considerably.
    3. 3
      Once the potato is cool enough to handle, add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl, then use an electric mixer on a high speed to thoroughly beat all the ingredients together; blend for several minutes, or until everything has been reduced to tiny chunks, and the mixture is consistent.
    4. 4
      Check the consistency of the mixture, it shouldn't be too thick; you should be able to mold it easily with your hands and have it hold its shape- adjust the consistency by adding water as needed.
    5. 5
      Line a small baking sheet or tray with waxed paper; begin to form some marble sized balls of the mixture by tearing off chunks and rolling them between your hands.
    6. 6
      Arrange each ball onto the prepared baking sheet, then repeat with the remaining mixture until you run out of mixture can no longer make any more balls.
    7. 7
      The balls are ready to be served immediately.
    8. 8
      Promptly place any leftover in the refrigerator until ready to use; Alternately, you can individually wrap each ball in waxed paper, foil, or plastic wrap, if space is an issue or you don't have a baking sheet to use.
    9. 9
      Defrost the frozen balls before serving.
