Made your recipe pretty much as given, although I did make it all into small balls not more than 2 inches in diameter, & had them on my finger food counter for a monthly group I host! Wasn't sure how well they'd go over, but the gathering of adults loved 'em! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick A Chef]
