Coconut Orange Balls

I have yet to introduce nuts or wheat to DS. While this recipe does not include wheat (you won't see ANY wheat recipes here) it does include chopped nuts. Both raisins and chopped nuts are a choking hazard for young children. So, leave this snack for the adults and older children. They're perfect for road trips, just remember to keep them cool.

1/2 c. raisins
3/4 c. chopped nuts (your choice)
1 T. orange zest
1-2 T. juice of one orange
1-2 T. honey
1 - 8oz package of cream cheese
2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

Using your hands, combine raisins, nuts, orange zest, orange juice, honey, cream cheese until well incorporated. Add more orange juice and/or honey if necessary to form a nice sticky balls. Roll balls in coconut flakes. Refrigerate until firm.
