Postoje stotine recepata za ove fine male kuglice od smokava i oraha, ja sam ovaj prilagodila svom ukusu, a vi uvijek možete mijenjati i dodavati!


Ingredients:

- 400 g dry figs
- 150 g crushed wallnuts (you can do this with almonds as well)
- app. 80 g minced wallnuts (for decoration)
- 2 spoons of honey
- 1 spoon of wallnut liquor (optional)
fresh juice from 1 orange (I squeezed 2 tangerines)

Cut figs in small pieces, add honey and juice and grind all in blender for a minute or so. Add crushed wallnuts (I crushed them in a plastic bag with a roller) and blend them together with a wooden spoon. Make small balls between your palms and roll the balls in minced wallnuts. Put them in a fridge over night. Enjoy!


Sastojci:

- 400 g suhih smokava
- 150 g mrvljenih oraha (možete orahe zamijeniti i bademima ako više volite)
- cca. 80 g mljevenih oraha (za dekoraciju)
- 2 žlice meda
- 1 žlica orahovice (po želji)
- svježe iscijeđen sok 1 naranče (ja sam iscijedila 2 mandarine)

Narežite suhe smokve na komadiće, dodajte med i narančin sok i sameljite sve u blenderu. Dodajte mrvljene orahe (ja sam ih izmrvila u plastičnoj vrećici preko koje sam par puta prešla drvenim valjkom) i sve dobro umiješajte drvenom kuhačom. Napravite male kuglice između dlanova i uvaljajte ih u mljevene orahe. Ostavite u hladnjaku preko noći. Dobar tek!
