Easter Treats

Oh Gee! Goji Nakayummies

These candies are perfect for either Passover or Easter. They create a lovely marbled affect like a dyed Easter Egg.

You can put them into any shape mold you like. I was looking for little egg-shapes, or even ovals, which I know exist, but I haven’t yet found them. Really, anything works, a small glass dish from which you cut the candy like fudge, rolling the semi-hardened mixture into a log and then cutting off disks as you want more, etc. Be creative!

ingredients:
1/2 cup goji berries, ground to a paste in a coffee or spice grinder
1/2 cup gently melted cacao butter
(use a double boiler or glass inside of a pan of boiled water)
1/2 cup gently softened coconut butter
1/3 to scant 1/2 cup raw honey
zest of two oranges (blood oranges work great)

preparation:
1) Thoroughly mix all ingredients together until blended.
2) Spoon mixture into flexible ice cube trays or candy molds (see note above). The mixture might separate a bit–the oil from the sweet goji paste. Don’t worry. This is what creates the lovely marbled effect. Just be sure to get some of each portion into each mold.
3) Once the molds or tray are filled, put the container in the freezer for a couple of hours. You can eat the candies right from the freezer or store them in the fridge after they’ve hardened.

Oh gee goji. . . pretty AND yummy. Enjoy!
