Cheezy QQ balls (Gluten-Free)
This is an Asian classic that you can find in Asian Bakery across town in Hong Kong. Its light, slightly chewy with a hollow center. Usually comes with lots of flavours like Sesame, Chocolate and my favourite cheese. I looked up several recipes and found it super easy to make and its actually gluten-free! My kids are the biggest fan of these little treats and I hope you will like this recipe too.
