Finger foods that are handy and yummy are always a huge hit. If they are sweet, then they are unbeatable! Walnut and Cashewnut Balls is one such healthy finger food for kids, made of calcium-rich walnuts and cashews roasted in ghee and bound together with sugar syrup. Do not make the sugar syrup too early as it will not help bind the mixture properly. Make it just before preparing the nut mix.
