They look and taste great.
Very creamy and smooth - easy to make although mixture was so soft and sticky - hard to roll into a ball. Perhaps I just needed to let it chill in fridge longer - or maybe 15 min in freezer would have done the trick. Used way more sprinkles to roll balls than I thought I would - but probably because they were sticky. Still - were very tasty and creamy - the family loved them.
The spookiest holiday is also the sweetest. Halloween desserts with spiders, cauldrons and critters will turn all of your fright into delight.
