Chocolate Raisins: skip the candy and make your own!
- Put raisins and dates through a food chopper or process briefly in a food processor.
- Add grated orange zest, cinnamon and vanilla. (The zest is the orange part of the peel.)
- Mix well and form into balls.
- Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Dip the balls into it, one at a time, using a wire chocolate dipping tool.
- Place on waxed paper to cool.
