I've got BALLS!! ... rice balls and cake balls...

One of my favorite Chinese desserts is loh mei chi, aka glutinious rice balls. These tasty chewy balls are usually filled with a sweet peanut butter mixture or a red bean paste. This week, I was surprised when I found a MANGO filled loh mei chi just sitting on the kitchen counter and just waiting to be eaten.

I was so excited that I started to eat it.
Then I stopped to document this moment so it could be remembered... forever.

Gold-like Goodness.

I wish I could take credit for making the mango glutinious rice ball because it was so yummy. But I can take credit for making... CAKE BALLS! Super easy and super messy- too messy to take pictures of.

I made Vanilla Cake Balls.

And Vanilla Cake Balls with OREO topping.
Adding the topping was hard work.

Inside sneak peak.
