Fruit and Nut Truffles (Sugarplums)

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by cookingpompom

This recipe is from "Making great candy" cookbook. This is not a confectionary item, more like a fruit mince truffle. They are delicious and remind you of Christmas, a simple homemade gift idea. If no food processor is available to you, use a large bowl and metal spoon, be sure to chop all you ingredients very small. I like to use kitchen sheers rather than a knife for dried fruit, which can be sticky and stick to the knife.

Delish! I only wish I'd read the reviews before making them, so I'd know to use WET hands to roll the hands were a sticky mess! I'm experimenting with goodies for Christmas gifts and these have certainly made the list. One batch made 25 sugarplums and I rolled mine in unsweetened, shredded coconut. Thanks for the recipe!
