This recipe for easy walnut balls is shared by Tracy Bodoni. She is a great baker and this recipe is her own creation. These sweets just melt in your mouth and walnut gives the required crunch. You can also use pecans instead of almonds. It is like snowball cookies but yummier. You can follow Tracy’s Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/moochamealwithtracy/
