Foodie Friday: Maple Balls ... mmm mmm good!

In keeping with the holiday spirit, today I offer you maple balls.  These are like peanut butter buckeyes, only not made with peanut butter!  And the beauty of them is ... no baking required!

Maple ballsMAPLE BALLS  (Via Walnut Creek Cheese)
1 c - butter
3 lb - powdered sugar
1 can - sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp - maple flavoring
1 c - finely chopped nuts
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Melt butter; add other ingredients, except nuts; knead well. Add nuts, roll in balls. Chill; dip in melted chocolate. Delicious! (You can also use other flavorings instead of maple if you like.)
