Cranberry-Date Almond Dessert Balls – in 10 minutes!

Cranberry-Date Almond Dessert Balls – in 10 minutes!

Make these raw snacks or desserts in 10 minutes. They taste great and you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry. I find myself making these over and over with different types of nuts or fruits, because they taste so good. Great for entertaining, too; so go ahead and double or triple recipe, depending on the size of your food processor bowl. Or, just make a few batches featuring different types of dried fruits and nuts. Great accompaniment to cheeses also.
