  • Transfer the cashew mixture to a large bowl. Mix orange zest and cardamom into the cashew mixture. Divide and shape mixture into 1-inch balls.

  • Spread coconut flakes into the bottom of a shallow dish. Roll balls in coconut to coat.

Cook's Notes:

You could substitute nutmeg for the cardamom.

If flakes have a hard time sticking to the outside of the balls, add coconut to mixture before turning them into balls.

Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
