It’s the holiday season, and that means a visit to the renown bakery of Pete Schweddy for some of his mouth-watering balls. If you can’t make it to Pete’s for a bite of his balls, then make your own! Thirsty Jane and friends converge each year for a candy making extravaganza. All of it is wonderful, but the balls always take center stage. Make Thirsty Jane’s Coconut Balls for your holiday gathering.
