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.
