    These are really good and easy to make. Using a stand mixer, the first part was very easy and not messy at all. Rolling them out and dusting is definitely messy but I suggest diving in and getting I️t done since the colder the dough is the better. Also someone noted that the sprinkles turned I️t red, mine did not and I used the candied ball type sprinkles rather than the colored sugar type. With that, they were mostly white as in the pictures. I made these last week for an office party, none were left, and am making a double batch tonight for a family party.

    The end product is really good! A big hit! However I did run into a few obstacles. The dough is really sticky and I have a hand held mixer so I had to get a second person to hold the mixer for me so I could manipulate and mix the dough. And then when making the balls, I had to keep stopping and clean my hands so I could add sprinkles and powdered sugar. All in all a really good recipe! It’s definitely one I’ll make again but make sure I have help!

    These were not all. And when I added the sprinkles to them they turned bright red, I know rookie mistake. I had high hopes, boo.
