Best Sugarplums

Most of us, it turns out, are pretty vague about those sugar plums. What they’re not, annoyingly enough, is sugar-coated plums.




12 cup slivered almonds
4 oz dried figs
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
12 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp honey
1 orange, zest grated (1 tablespoon)
12 tsp almond extract
34 cup granulated sugar



  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds to bring out their flavor. Remove from heat; cool.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread the sugar in a shallow dish. Form the sugarplums into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar.
