Is the word "sweets" culturally associated specifically with kids'
food in the UK? I too think first of a children's menu. If it were me,
I'd just call it {yuch} and be done with it.

I am more inclined to put the words in the other order. To me, {naHlet
yuch} is a kind of chocolate associated with nuts (my first impression
is actually Nutella). On the other hand, {yuch naHlet} is a nut,
perhaps made from or coated with chocolate. Getting fancier, {yuch yub
naHlet} seems likely to evoke the right idea.

Raisins aren't {naHHom} in my mind; that would be more like a berry.
{ghIrep QaD} might be a good way to refer to raisins.
