DO NOT do what I did, and put all the raisins & nuts in the blender & turn it on!!!! Not unless you like eau de burnt motor! Better to put a few raisins & nuts in at a time and grind. Also, it didn't set. So I pried it out of the pan & rolled it in 32 balls instead. I rolled the balls in a total of 1 c. sweetened coconut that I had colored red. That said, these are a cool texture, and the perfect mix of salty and sweet. A great "healthier" addition to a cookie platter. I would have been perfectly happy giving them 5 stars if I had known from the beginning that I would be rolling them into balls. (My blender is fine, BTW )

5 Stars for easy to make and tasty too. I have a heavy duty blender so the chopping was a breeze, but you could chop by hand as well. I doubled the recipe and used half raisins and half dates for the fruit portion. I also added some cinnamon, cardamom and ginger to the mix. Overall very tasty.
