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.
- .Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until a ball forms (it should take about 2 minutes).
- With wet hands, roll into balls (about the size of a large cherry) then roll into the extra sugar.
- Store in an airtight container for upto 2 weeks.
- Makes 25 - 35 truffles.
