Nibbles, Noshes & Nachas

Nachas-A Yiddish word meaning that you are happy and proud, especially of the accomplishments of your children

Jewish holidays bring iconic Jewish food. Passover is around the corner. Charoses is always on the plate, but here's a Sephardic treat the Charoset Trufle


Tori Avey



  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dates
  • 1 1/2 cups dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 3/4 cup shelled pistachios
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


You will also need: Food processor



  • Place dates, apricots, raisins, pistachios and honey and place in a food processor. Pulse for about 2 minutes until the mixture is smooth but still has texture. You may need to break up the sticky mixture a few times if it collects in a ball in the processor.
  • In a bowl, mix together the sugar and the cinnamon. Form date mixture into balls that are about ¾ inch in diameter. The balls will be sticky and soft. It will be easier to shape them if you wet your hands slightly.
  • Dry your hands. Dip the balls in the cinnamon sugar and coat thoroughly, and re-roll between your palms to smooth out any rough edges. Serve at room temperature.
