This is a variation on our Fruit and Nut Truffles with an extra kick – Bourbon, which gives these Fruit and Nut Balls a sophisticated flavor.
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup apricots
1/4 cup walnuts, 1/4 cup almonds, 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/4 cup bourbon (We use vegan-friendly Maker’s Mark)
In a food processor pulse raisins, apricots, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and coconut until coarsely blended. Add in cocoa powder and bourbon. Process continuously until mixture forms a “dough” and starts to clump together. Remove and form into 1 inch diameter balls. Place on a serving dish or chill until ready to serve. Makes about 20 balls
