  • Summary

    These classic candies (called sweetmeats by the British) look sinful but are little more than dried apricots, figs, and plums dusted with nuts, cocoa, or sugar.

    Ingredients

    • Each version makes 20 bonbons. To chop the fruit, use a heavy chef's knife or a food processor set on pulse.
    • 2 cups finely chopped dried apricots
    • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
    • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
    • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 cups finely chopped dried red plums or prunes
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 2 cups finely chopped dried figs, stems removed first
    • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
    • 1/4 cup crystal sugar, maple sugar, or unsweetened cocoa; or 1/4 cup ground chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds
