  • 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
  • grape soda Jewel Dust


  • Mix all ingredients except the sugar and Jewel 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.)
  • Form the mixture into teaspoon-sized balls.
  • Roll the balls in powdered sugar and then roll in Jewel Dust. Note: If you let the balls sit overnight, the powdered sugar will absorb into the balls and will be less visible.
