raisin walnut balls

Better than candy! Quick, easy, delicious and nutritious. What more could you want in a snack?! These will keep in the fridge for quite awhile, but I can't really say just how long, as ours don't ever last more than a day. These are a great snack on their own, or as a special treat to accompany your popcorn on movie night! This is one of those recipes that your kids are gonna want to help out with. There's just something about rolling sticky stuff into little balls that brings kids running!

So you have an idea of the size, the raisin walnut balls in the photo are kid-bite-sized (less than an inch). They are sitting on a children's play tea set saucer.

Raisin Walnut Balls

1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts

In a food processor, mix the raisins and walnuts until they become a solid, sticky ball. Roll into individual balls (kid-sized-bites are good). Let cool and solidify a bit in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.

I just made these but they are so oily, it's crazy! Anything I can add to them next time?

It seems they would be good rolled in shredded coconut.

You can roll them in cinnamon and/or powdered sugar.
