I made these tasty sweets one time when I wanted to prepare another desert, but I was missing one key ingredient, the dates.
So I replaced them with the next best sweet thing I had at home, figs.
For preparing 12 bonbons I used 150 grams dried figs, 100 grams mixed nuts (pecan, almonds, Brazilian nuts, walnuts etc.) and two spoons of desiccated coconut flakes for decoration. I soaked the nuts for about 10 minutes in water, then I drained them well.
Dice everything with the aid of a food processor for about two minutes, then check if the mixture is blended well enough. If you have the feeling that it isn’t sticky enough you can add a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup. Add a pinch of cinnamon for a touch of Christmas. Another time you can flavour them with vanilla or cocoa powder.
Roll the mix into bonbons and spread them with the dessicated coconut.
Refrigerate for about an hour before serving and get ready to make more soon, as I’m sure you’ll fall in ♥ with them!
