Coconut Fruit Balls

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef floWer

Healthy little treats for people with sweet tooths. I've made these during the holiday season to bring to functions and was enjoyed by all. I'm really finicky on getting all the dried fruit the same size so it took me a little longer then 20 mins to put this recipe together.

Yum!!! What a little treat! I love dry fruit and coconut so these were perfect for me. I like they are healthy and good for you! I used cranberry instead of sultana, add bit a more condensed milk. I made 15 little balls. Perfect after workout as it gives instant energy. Definitely keeper and I am not sharing these little goodies with anyone! :) Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap November 2011. Thank you so much Chef floWer!
