Cranberry Almond Deliciousness


My daughter named these yummy treats Cranberry Almond Deliciousness. They are really easy to make, consist of only four ingredients and no baking required.


Ingredients:
1 cup dates (buy pitted or cut out seeds yourself)
1 cup dried fruit of your choice, obviously we went with cranberry
1 cup almonds
1 teaspoon cinnamon


First grind up a handful of the almonds and set aside.


Next, using a high powered blender or food processor, blend dates, cranberries, and cinnamon into a paste. Then add almonds and pulse until lightly chopped and mixed thoroughly.


Lastly roll the paste into balls and toss around in the ground almonds. Makes about 8-10...or it could have been 12. My daughters were helping and a couple disappeared before I took the picture!! Wrapped in wax paper they make a cute gift or a nice sweet addition to any school lunch. Enjoy!


Need a blender? This one is awesome...
