Cheese Balls | Snack Ideas | Super Cheesy

Assalam 'o' Alaykum everyone! Hope you're all doing well.

Today I'm sharing with you this Cheese Balls recipe which is perfect to serve as snack. Your kids will definitely love these!

My first time making these didn't really turned out how I wanted them to be. Don't get me wrong they tasted amazing the only problem was that the balls didn't hold up their shape. Once it was time of frying the balls will always crack open! Not really a fun experience!

So, I thought maybe the cause of the problem was the boiled potato being not yet completely cool. Which then caused them to break while frying!

So, I tried making this another time! I didn't give up there!

The second time I tried making these again I made sure I added cornflour to the potato mixture and freeze them in the freezer for at least 1 hour before frying.

Luckily this time they didn't break! YAY! Success!
They were amazing and my sister ate the most of them! -.-
