This is a traditional pecan balls recipe, with only 4 ingredients: butter, flour, pecans and sugar. (If you drizzle in chocolate, 5 ingredients) The result is a nutty, buttery, crumbly cookie ball that just melts in your mouth. It’s not super sweet, but it really hits the spot. Nice and easy snack or hostess gift!
