More Christmas Pressies

In addition to the granola, I was at it making other edible Christmas pressies!
Naturally, choccie was a MUST on the list. Let's see, I made...

Truffles in a multitude of flavours, incorporating cacao, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, maca, maple, vanilla, orange, lucuma, and mesquite...
Fruit and Nut Choccie Squares with almonds, raisins, goji berries, and cashews.
A few special friends recieved these Chocolate Caramel Nut Crunch Squares.

I did four kinds of Sweet Glazed Nuts.
Last time I soaked the nuts first, this time I didn't - I find the coating stays on better, creating a better end result. Toss the nuts with a sweetener and spice of your choice. Spread em on a teflex sheet and dehydrate until dry (some will stay sticky depending on what you use).
Clockwise from the top:
Lucuma Cream Cashews/Macadamias - lucuma and pure maple syrup.
Maple Walnuts - Pure maple syrup, maple sugar (powdered)
Sticky Sweet Almonds - dates, agave, himalayan salt
Cinnamon Walnuts - agave, cinnamon, mesquite
Coconut Mix - shredded coconut, agave, & maple powder with almonds, macadamias, cashews
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. Hopefully you are enjoying the holiday with your loved ones!
