|1⁄2 cup slivered almonds|
|4 oz dried figs|
|2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder|
|1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon|
|3 tbsp honey|
|1 orange, zest grated (1 tablespoon)|
|1⁄2 tsp almond extract|
|3⁄4 cup granulated sugar|
- In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds to bring out their flavor. Remove from heat; cool.
- Combine the figs, cocoa, cinnamon, and almonds in a food processor, pulsing until peppercorn-size balls form. Add the honey, orange zest, and almond extract. Pulse 3 or 4 times more until well mixed.
- Spread the sugar in a shallow dish. Form the sugarplums into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar.
