Snowy Bollocks

Prepping for Sunday’s invitational century (Seabright Broory’s annual cycle run).  I’m not a big fan of ready-made snack food (except for salt & pepper flavored Kettle Brand potato chips, the best ‘crisp’ ever  made). Since snacking is the name of the game whilst cycling, I dug around in the ‘cup-hoard”, and dug up three jars of (only slightly past-date) nut butters, combined them all: almond, macadamia, and cashew. Blended up more whole cashews. Emptied an antique tub of halavah (sesame seeds and something sweet, a tasty middle eastern candy) into a bowl with the aforementiond aflatoxin-loaded nut pastes, added dried cherries, a glug of fig syrup, and ultra fine diced lemon peel. If I had other dried fruit I’d a thrown it in, too.

Rolled up golf-ball sized spheres, then rolled them in raw coconut flakes, and declared them…fit to enjoy.

Oh, wait, there should be some dusted with (Scharffen Berger) cocoa,  unsweetened.  A gesture of solidarity for Future President Obama. (PRAY!!!)

And there you have them, two is enough to get you down the road five miles.

  1. Ah yes– Kettle makes some fine chips indeed! Not only do they make good stuff- they do so without ruining where they live, too. A fine corporate citizen. 🙂

    Now, about those “bollocks”… how to they weather sitting in a jersey pocket for a couple of hours? Are the peppers meant to be eaten before or after the bollocks? You don’t mention…

    Robert’s American Gourmet makes some pretty good nosh. Veggie Booty is my fave, followed closely by Chaos (The wheat-free version. We’re a gluten-free household!).
