  • Heat this mixture for 20 seconds at a time in the microwave, about 3 times. Whisk between heating bouts. The mixture will start to smell amazing and it will dry out a bit and become fluffier.

  • This mixture is really easy to pick up so you can use your hands or a melon baller to shape into balls. (I usually start with the melon baller but then just end up using my hands because it's faster.)
