Seed and Nut Sweeties

Seed and Nut Sweeties come from Israel. That’s where I discovered them among flourless treats on a dessert table during Passover. Special foods are interwoven into the Passover meal each spring with the retelling of the biblical story of the ancient Israelites liberated from Egyptian slavery. The dinner is free of any leavened wheat products, a reminder of the fleeing slaves who escaped Egypt before their bread could rise. While I sampled all the homemade meringues, macaroons and chocolate dipped berries and bonbons, the Seed & Nut Sweetie was the only dessert I wanted to take home.
