These were a hit! You definitely have to let them chill for easier handling. I also very lightly dampened my hands (very lightly) for the rolling and although they were still a little messy it seemed to help some. I toasted some pecans, ground them up in the processor and rolled some of the balls in that and it was fantastic!! This is an awesome recipe and very versatile. I'm making the parsley and pecan rolled balls for a birthday party this weekend. Should be a winner!
