Fruit balls

This recipe is so easy & yet it tastes simply wonderful!   

Sure beats giving kids processed afternoon treats - these are sure to please.

Fruit balls

2/3 cup cashews (raw unsalted works best)

2/3 cup raisins

2/3 cup dried apricots

2/3 cup dried figs

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup dates, pits removed (can use fresh or dried)

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup cocoa

Put cashews & all dried fruit into a food processor and process until all pieces are small.

Add the peanut butter & cocoa and continue to process until mixed well & mixture sticks together.

Roll into bite sized pieces.

Best served refrigerated.

Makes about 40 pieces depending on the size.

You can use different fruit and nuts to suit your own taste.

This recipes comes from the nutritionmd website. I have just added less raisins because I didn't have the 2 types mentioned!
