With big handfuls of dried apricots and cherries, almonds and pistachios, we make dozens of treats you can take anywhere.—Donna Pochoday-Stelmach, Morristown, New Jersey


  • 2-1/2 cups sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/4 cups finely chopped dried cherries or dried cranberries
  • 1 cup mixed nuts, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup M&M's minis


  1. Place almonds in a food processor; process until finely ground. While processing, gradually add honey and extract. Remove to a large bowl; stir in cherries, mixed nuts and candies. Divide mixture in half; shape each into an 8-in. long roll. Wrap tightly in plastic; freeze 1 hour or until firm.
  2. Unwrap and cut rolls into 1/2-in. slices. Store between pieces of waxed paper in airtight containers.
