Gingerbread Fudge Balls

Gingerbread Fudge Balls

We save these for Christmas-time. The little sweet balls are filled with aromatic spices that we associate with holidays, family, and peace..


½ cup soaked and dried almonds 
1 ¼ cup pitted dates 
1 ¾ cup almond butter 
4 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom 
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground ginger
1 tsp star anise
a few good pinches of freshly ground black pepper

Process almonds into butter in a food processor. Add the other ingredients and process 1-2 minutes extra. They should be soft and chewy like fudge or caramel and will have an extra yummy consistency when frozen and eaten straight from the freezer. You can also eat the dough just as is.
