Raisin-Nut Balls

These are so easy and SO good. They are much more decadent than one would think.

1 cup raisins
3/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup freshly toasted coconut flakes (unsweetened)

Pulse the raisins and pecans in a food processor until the mixture can be clumped together easily. Then add the toasted coconut and pulse a couple of times. If you add the coconut while it is still a bit warm, it works best. Get messy and squeeze and squish the mixture into bite-sized balls. Eat one while warm, yum! Put the rest into a ziploc bag and store in the fridge. They taste different chilled - maybe even better!

Variations: Add rum. Dried cherries instead of raisins. Walnuts instead of pecans. Dates instead of rainsins. Etc.
