A “ladoo” is a popular Indian sweet rolled into balls and served during Indian festival times of the year. This is a modern holiday version of a ladoo which contains mixed peeled fruit, coconut, raisins and the spicy flavours of masala Chai.

In a small bowl, soak raisins in sherry or rum. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, add peanut butter and mix well. If consistency is stiff, slightly warm up peanut butter in microwave or on stovetop.
Mix in remaining ingredients and combine. Chill in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Roll into balls (slightly smaller than walnut size).
Place remaining coconut in a small bowl. Dust balls with coconut to garnish. Store in refrigerator.
