Although, I didn't have any walnuts and used a mixture of cashews and almonds instead, we loved these and I will certainly be making them again. The mixture was a little wet so I plopped spoonfuls on my baking sheet instead of forming them into balls. They came out looking a little like cookies, which didn't bother me at all,
