Moroccan Charoset Balls

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Ducky

These charoset balls are part of the Moroccan Passover tradition and are scooped up with romain lettuce at the seder. I received this recipe as part of a women's seder. The recipe can originally be found in the "Jewish Cooking in America" cookbook. Cook time does not include refrigeration time. Yield should be 3 1/2 C (system won't allow me to enter that). I have been told that there is no such thing as a sweet red wine (excepting the Mogen David line) and to use a zinfandel as the closest substitute.

A very sweet treat! A bit to sweet for me. in place of the golden raisins I used dried Apricots. For the wine I used sweet sherry. My processor had a hard time with these. I seggest making half at a time.This is a good way to boost your energy level. Well it`s not a bad recipe just to sweet for me.
