Visions of Sugarplums

SUGARPLUMS for the staff party tomorrow.

View On Black

  

These were DELICIOUS. Great for any holiday party. No refrigeration needed, no baking, and super easy!

 

Sugarplums

 

1/2 cup toasted pecans

 

1/2 cup toasted walnuts

 

1/4 cup pitted dates

 

1/2 cup dried figs

 

1/4 cup dried cherries

 

1/2 cup dried Pear

 

1/2 cup dried apricots

 

1 tablespoon candied ginger

 

1 tablespoon grated orange zest

 

1-2 tablespoons of orange juice, as needed.

 

Stick everything in a food processor and pulse until finely minced. Add just enough orange juice to bind the ingredients together. Roll into 1 inch balls and then roll in sugar, set on a rack to dry (about an hour or 2).
