Do not eat these fire balls if you are not used to eating super spicy hot food. Make them mild or your way since this recipe is easy to customize.
I have few community people who always have Habanero, Jalapeno and many kind of Chili peppers in their kitchen so I myself even thought of preparing something super spicy. These Balls taste yummy but will sure create burning sensations and I do not recommend to try out if you are not used eating spicy food.
