Saturday Night Visions of Sugar Plums..

It has been a very sad and trying weekend and I wanted to send out peaceful thoughts at a time when we really feel helpless!
 Let us try to exude Peace this time of year in the wake of unrest!
Let us allow our beautiful innocent children to have visions of sugar plums dance through their heads!

  • 2 cups toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 cup pitted prunes, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cut pitted dates, finely chopped
  • powdered sugar for rolling coating the balls
  • plum purple disco dust (I got mine from Layer Cake Shop)
  1. Mix all ingredients except the sugar and disco dust together in a large bowl.  Optionally, place the whole mixture in the food processor and process for a few seconds - this will help everything to stick together, especially if you aren't the best at finely chopping. (I'm raising my hand high on this one.)
  2. Form the mixture into teaspoon-sized balls.
  3. Roll the balls in powdered sugar and then roll in disco dust.  Note:  If you let the balls sit overnight, the powdered sugar will absorb into the balls and will be less visible.
