When the guests arrive, they may need an energy boost after their travels: It's proper custom for many hosts to offer something to drink and eat. Especially before a Passover seder or any seudah, when the aromas of the upcoming meal are taunting everyone from the kitchen, it's a good idea to have a platter on hand of snacks. Persian food expert Reyna Simnegar has the solution with this variety of welcoming treats that guests can enjoy the moment they walk in the door. 

These elegantly delicious yet healthy bite-sized truffles are the perfect snack to pass around as you offer your guests a hot drink. You can artfully arrange them on a decorative plate with additional nuts and dried fruits. Make sure to serve with toothpicks or in fancy cupcake wrappers for easy grabbing.
