Raisin Nut Truffles


These are so simple that I don't even follow a recipe to make.

You won't, either, once you try and see how easy they are.

But for those of you who prefer recipes, I've got you covered!



1 cup raisins

1/3 - 1/2 cup your choice nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, and hazelnuts are great)

1 tbs + 1/3 cup shredded coconut


Put raisins, nuts, and 1 heaping tbs of shredded coconut into the food processor. Blend for a few minutes until nuts are chopped sufficiently. Mix should be squishable, so adjust with more raisins, if necessary.

Roll tablespoon amounts of mix into balls and then into reserved coconut. Kids love to help with this part. Allow them to squish the treats into any shape they like.
