Colored Sugar


  1. To make Sugar Plums, combine walnuts, dried figs, dried apricots, dried dates, chocolate chips, honey, and spices in a food processor. Pulse a few times to chop nuts and fruit into small pieces.
  2. Process continuously for 30 seconds. Scrape edges of bowl to make sure nothing is sticking.
  3. Continue processing for another 1-2 minutes, until ingredients form a ball.
  4. Roll into bite-sized balls and roll each sugarplum in either different colored sugars or in powdered sugar.
  5. To make colored sugar, divide granulated sugar between two bowls. Add 1-2 drops of red food coloring to sugar in one bowl and 1-2 drops of green food coloring to sugar in the other bowl. Stir well until all sugar is colored.
