Another ball recipe from Fit Foodie Finds? Don’t tell me you are disappointed. I know you can’t get enough of my ball jokes on Snapchat.

Pleaseeee tell me you are following FitFoodieFinds. Lin and I posted a hilarious snap of these balls mid photo shoot. We may or may not have referenced Santa’s balls.

I mean, these are red on the inside and green on the outside.

Those pistachios though.

Just splurge on the dang pistachios already. I know they are an expensive-er nut, but they’re bright green and PERFECT. They do complete the Santa’s balls look. Green + Red…you get my drift?
