LOVE THESE BALLS, & your recipe is a definite keeper! The almond/apricot/raisin is a great combo! Made these for a monthly group I host, & they were gone in no time! These are certainly something I'll be making again as the winter holidays approach! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

Yes indeed, these crunchy, cheesy little nibbles are very tasty. I actually made 1/4 of the recipe just to get a taste before I made dozens to bring to our small group gathering next Sunday. Since I don't care for raisins, I used dried cranberries, and added my own little tweek, by including some finely minced candied ginger. Use your imagination with combinations of nuts and fruit to create dozens of delicious morsels all birthed from this wonderful recipe. This is a good one Sam#3
