When just a small bit of sugar is needed.....try this.
Put some dried prunes and pecans in the food processor until chopped up. Roll the mixture into small balls and then refrigerate overnight. The next day, melt some dark chocolate in the microwave just till warm. Now dip the prune and nut balls in the chocolate and place on parchment paper to harden off.
Store these in a cool place.
Then.......eat one whenever you have a craving for something sweet.
Of course, you can use any dried fruit and nut for these simple treats. I put a pistachio on the tops of these.
