Just to show that not everything in the Nanny household is made with condensed milk I thought I would share the Fruit Nut Balls that we make. These are a great activity (supervised) for children – fun to make and taste great too!
What you need:
1 cup dried fruit medley
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup skim milk powder
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup coconut
coconut extra for rolling
What you do:
- Take a bowl and add the dried fruit medley,raisins and dates.
2. Add the boiling water and leave for about 15 minutes.
3. Add the skim milk powder, chopped nuts and coconut and mix well
4. Roll into small balls (about a large teaspoon) and roll in coconut
5. Chill before serving
This made 36 – if you make these Fruit Nut Balls, have supplies on hand because you will want to make more!!
I’m off to make a Christmas pudding – I’ll show you that tomorrow!
Until next time
