  • Pulse the dates in a food processor to chop down. Process on low until it becomes paste-like. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Add the remaining base ingredients and process to chop everything down – scraping the sides and repeat. Process on high for 2-3 minutes until the pretzels are broken into small bits.
  • Add the cranberries/raisins/spices and process on high for another 2-3 minutes – until everything is combined.
  • Add in the wet ingredients and process a few times. Scrape the sides down again and process on low for 3-5 minutes until combined.
  • Once the mix is orangey and sticky, carefully remove the blades, give it a good mix, and empty into a bowl. Cover with food wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prepare the toppings in small bowls. Once the dough is ready, roll into small balls. Using a fork/toothpick, dip them into the toppings of your choice.
  • Place them on a flat container and refrigerate overnight – or a minimum of 2 hours.
