Place the dates and wine in a pot and warm through. Mix well and turn off the heat.
Pulse the walnuts and almonds in a food processor once or twice. Add the pear and silan and mix.
Add warm date mixture to the food processor and blend for a few seconds.

Chill for an hour. Serve as it is or form individual spheres to serve to each person.
If you use spices on Passover, add one teaspoon of cinnamon to the mixture.
