Passover Honey Balls Posted on 6 Aug 14:29 , 0 comments

While this is a classic treat during Passover, any day is a good day to share these with your friends and family.  They aren't difficult to make.  We are lucky when we find organic and gluten-free matza in our local shops, but it isn't always possible.  Try them...you'll love them!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup Bee Wild raw honey
  • 1/3 cup organic turbinado sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped organic walnuts
  • 1/4 cup crumbled matza
  • 2 tsp chopped organic orange rind
  • 1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped organic toasted nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup toasted organic coconut (optional)

PREPARATION

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with organic cooking spray
  2. Bring honey and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan, making a syrup
  3. Mix in the matza and walnuts. Make sure all the nuts and matza are covered with the syrup. This should be quite a thick mixture
  4. Mix in the orange peel and cinnamon
  5. Use two teaspoons to drop the mixture on the parchment paper
  6. Cool in your refrigerator for at least 10 minutes
  7. Oil your hands with olive oil and roll each drop into a ball
  8. If you like chopped nuts or coconut, you can roll the balls in either one or both
  9. Store the Honey Balls in the refrigerator until you want to serve them. Try to lay them flat on a cookie sheet without the honey balls touching until they set. They are very sticky
