Bliss balls

Submitted by: DICHRISTENSON


Number of Servings: 30

Ingredients

    1-1/2 cups dates
    1/2 cup dried apricots
    1 cup coconut
    2/3 cup sultanas
    3 tbs cocoa powder or carob
    1-1/2 tbs honey
    1 tbs tahini
    1 cup of nuts: choose a combination of three kinds from almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds or sunflower seeds. 2/3 cup of hot water to soak the dates, apricots and sultanas. Extra coconut (fine) to roll the bliss balls in at the end.

Directions

Chop the apricots and dates into medium-small pieces. Soak them and the sultanas in hot water for half an hour to soften them. Then drain them and squeeze the water from them very thoroughly. Save the water—it is delicious, and you can either drink it or use it in another recipe!
Chop the nuts finely. Mix them and the apricots, dates and sultanas with the cocoa, tahini, honey and coconut to a firm consistency—add more coconut if the mixture is too wet.
Add a little more honey if you like them sweeter.
Roll into balls of your preferred size, then roll in extra coconut.
Refrigerate.
