I started to call them energy balls, but I had flashbacks to Alec Baldwin on SNL’s. The skit where he was a guest on Delicious Dish to share his famous Schweddy Balls recipe from his holiday bakery, Seasons Eatings.

  • 5 ingredients
  • no baking involved
  • no technical prep
  • shelf-stable ingredients

It drives my sister and daughter crazy!
