View Full Version : Raw candy birthday treats.
06-09-2005, 05:20 AM
At the school my children go to we arent allowed to give candy as birthday treat. :) So, the kids usually give fruit as a treat.
But I wonder if there is a way to make raw candy.
Is there anyone who wants to share some recipes???
Thanks a bunch.

Do you have a dehydrator or not?
If so, have you considered making fruit leather or dried fruit such as bananas, strawberries, mango, papaya, etc?
Also, if you visit these two site:
http://fromsadtoraw.com/RawRecipes.htm and http://living-foods.com/recipes
you'll find recipes for such things as raw candy, fudge, truffles, etc.
OH!! Right here on this very board, member Healthe posted a recipe she created to satisfy her craving for chocolate covered cherries...here is the link to her post with the recipe: http://rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4270

One of my raw un-cook books is all about candy,
but let me say the best raw candy is the simplest one to make
1 cup walnuts (unsoaked)
1/2 to 1 cup medjool dates (pitted and unsoaked)
I use medjool dates, but the difference in the amount of dates is based on how fresh your dates are, if they are fresher they have more moisture content and if they are not so fresh, they will be drier, also dates can vary is size dramatically, so you kind of have to start with 1/2 cup and go from there.
Also, I like these trufles really sweet, so I use more dates, but as I stay raw longer, I like less and less sweetness, so I prefer less and less dates.
blend together in food processor, NOT too long, because you want it to hold together yet still be chunky. (If you blend too long, you will leach the oils out of the walnuts, and the bitterness will be more apparant-but you want the natural bitter flavor of the almonds, because it makes the dates taste truly magnificent)
form into balls, and serve, sooooo easy,
You can add a touch or vanilla if you like, and some cinnamon, but it isn't necessary.
If you want them to keep, just pop them in the fridge.
I make little balls about the size of marbles, but you can make them bigger, it's all up to you.

Thank you so much for the recipe :) I'm getting hungry while reading it.
I didnt know you write un-cookbooks. I am on your website right now (after typing this message). I guess you dont ship your books to Holland.
Thanks for the links. No, I dont have a dehydrator (yet). There is one store here where they sell them, but the prices are unbelievable. I would have to pay 400 euro for a dehydrator. Very frustrating.
