      This recipe is colossal. It's vegan, it's raw, it's easy, and it is insanely delicious. Healthful flavor nuggets will assail your senses and wow your guests. I made these as part of a Moroccan feast I am preparing for my church tomorrow. A double batch allows me to pass out samples. Every single person who has tasted these pops them in and then eyes fly open wide. "O WOW!" immediately follows, every time. Junk food lovers, health food lovers, every one has raved. Don't skip the olives and double the salt. These are the Moroccan equivalent of chocolate covered pretzels. These would be perfect on a Christmas party tray.
