I haven’t invented anything here… These things are all over the Internet.
Having seen them so often and in so many different colors and flavors, I decided I had to give them a try. I mean, they are soooo cute and they look so good!
So I just took a shot at it. I didn’t follow any particular recipe, I just went ahead and sort of created my own version.
Now I’ve only got one thing to say about these.
OMG! They are just as good as they look.
Now I’ve got a new addiction, as if I needed one. This has just opened an entire new world of possibilities for me… now I want to take this beyond the ball shaped bite, I want to create all sorts of goodies, and I already have a few things in mind.
Most recipes that I’ve come across were, from what I read, more on the soft side and had to be kept in the freezer in order to hold their shape.
I didn’t care much for that aspect of the bites. I wanted my balls to be their own man (hmmm, that doesn’t sound good, now, does it?) and hold their shape without any help. I thus created a dryer version, one that has to be squeezed really, really hard to form a ball, but once made into that ball, it just stays nice and put. No need to keep them in the fridge, or in the freezer.
I’ve had mine in the cupboard for a week now and they (well, it, as there’s only one left…)
are is still as good and as round as it was on the first day.
I get the feeling that it won’t make it through the day…
Poor fellow, gotta have pity on him… he must be so lonely, all alone in that large plastic container.
Right… all alone, up there, in that… plastic… container…
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I, erm… have to go check on him! 😉
