Classes at school finished last week and these cute balls were made by my cute students. They brought these sweets to school on the last day of classes and shared them with their teachers and friends. As they knew about my blog, they generously made a small package of these balls for me so that I could take a better photo of these and put it in a post. Meanwhile, another friend of them took a photo of us (the one wearing a blue T-shirt is me) to make that moment unforgettable. Two of these beautiful girls sitting in the front made carrot balls and the other pretty girl standing near me made cocoa balls. Both balls were so yummy that nothing left at the end of the class except my small package. They said that it’s very easy to make these balls, and wrote the recipes on small note papers. So when you want to make something sweet without a lot of effort, you can try these.
Carrot Balls (Havuçlu Toplar)

- ½ cup milk
- 1 cup sugar

They both used biscuits named Petit Beurre, you can use your favorite plain biscuits to make these balls.
Also, I took a photo of all my students in that class with her camera. My lovely and responsible student didn’t forget to send me these photos, so I can share them with you thanks to her. Look how young and witty they are! Wish them good luck in life!
