I made these a week ago.  Relatively healthy and easy to make, these candies are best when stored in the fridge, in a Tupperware container. If you don’t have raw peanuts, about 1/3-1/2 cup of raw chunky peanut butter works here, too. For me, the biggest challenge with this recipe is to not let my kid eat more than two-three pieces of this candy a day! Try to find the sour cherries, as cranberries are usually sold sweetened, which is not ideal for this recipe. If you are into peanut butter and jelly, check out this crazy raw mix, too!
Ingredients:

dried sour cherries ( or cranberries,)  1/4 cup

dried dates, pitted, 1 cup.

raw peanuts, 1 cup

Directions:

1. In large bowl, mash dry fruits with potato masher (make sure to check each date to make sure even the pitted ones are without pit). If mashed dates seem too dry, add just enough hot water to moisten them. You can also use your food processor, if you don’t mind cleaning the sticky dry fruit mix afterwards.

2. Crush the peanuts  and mix into the mashed dates and cherries. Roll the mix into balls. Cool in the fridge for about 20 mins before serving.
