3. Using your hands, scoop up an handful of the mixture, rolling it between your palms to make half-dollar sized balls. One at a time, roll each ball in the Erythritol and cinnamon until the ball is completely coated.

4. Once coated, place each ball in the Tupperware container. When finished, place the Tupperware container in the refrigerator. After 10 minutes, enjoy!
