Place all of the ingredients except for the sanding sugar in the food processor and process for a minute or until everything is finely chopped and sticks together if you squeeze it.
Form the mixture into balls, about two tablespoons each.
Roll the balls in sanding sugar.
Like fruit cake, sugar plums actually taste better over time. You can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a month.If you'd like, you can use other kinds of dried fruit - you'll need two cups of dried fruit total. If you are allergic to nuts, you can leave them off. The texture won’t be quite the same, but they will still taste great!You can experiment with making them different sizes. I like the 2 tablespoon size because they fit nicely in mini cupcake liners.
