Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Finely chop apricot, pecans, figs, raisins and coconut by hand or in a food processor.
  2. Add liquer; blend well.
  3. Shape into 1" balls by rolling between the palms of your hands.
  4. Roll each ball in sugar.
  5. Store in air-tight containers in the refrigerator between sheets of wax paper for up to 1 month.
  6. To package: Place several sugar plums in a doily cone.
  7. Arrange in a shallow basket and add a sprig of holly.
  8. Add pretty bows or ribbon.
  9. NOTE: I always double the recipe because I seem to roll the balls larger than 1" and do not yield 36 without doubling it and sometimes then I still do not get the full yield.
