No Bake Cranberry White Chocolate Bites

No Bake Cranberry White Chocolate Bites: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This snack had me intrigued and doubtful at the same time. I have made many snack balls over the years and they all have one thing in common, some sticky ingredient to hold everything together. This recipe only had the dried cranberries pureed with water to hold everything together and I did not think it would work.

Turns out it does work, only if you do not add too much water. You need just enough water to make a paste out of the cranberries. So as you puree the cranberries check the consistence before you add more water.

No Bake Cranberry White Chocolate Bites
Ingredients:
1 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup water
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:
In a glass measuring cup add the water and the dried cranberries. Heat in the microwave for 50 seconds. Drain the cranberries, reserving the water. Place the cranberries and 1 tablespoon of reserved water in a blender. Blend until a smooth paste forms. Remove the cranberries and place in a large bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir together. Add 1-3 teaspoons of water if needed to form the mixture into balls. Using 1 tablespoon measuring scoop form the mixture into balls and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!!!
