It is not that simple
Have you tried making it? It really is easy to make. I love that all I have to do is mix my ingredients and roll into a ball. Wear gloves when mixing with your hands if you want!
Can you make this two days in advance
Yes! Just keep it in the fridge covered.
I like to roll mine in chopped pecans to keep outside from being sticky.
I love this recipe. I always roll the completed ball in shredded cheese to keep the outside from being sticky, and it looks fantastic. I usually make it a day ahead so the flavors can develop.
So glad you like it!!
Can I make this one day before needing it?
Yes! We always make it before and I put plastic wrap on it and keep it in the fridge.
