Again, another recipe that looks great but no mention of servings. If I'm having 12 guests for a party, how many balls would this make, approximately. Would I want to double it or triple it? These points are important mostly for shopping ingredients. I'd hate to put all this together and find out it would only make ten or twelve appetizers. your social media marketing partner
