Coconut Date Balls

December 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

I made these on Christmas day following the recipe card that my Grandmother hand-wrote in 1984.  These rich, crispy little treats are the most delicious way to end a meal.  Covered in flaky coconut, they are sure to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth!

Coconut Date Balls:

1 cup sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 lb. chopped dates

3 cups Rice Krispies

1/2 cup nuts

Melt dates, sugar, and eggs on stove over low heat until bubbly.  Remove from heat and add Rice Krispies and nuts.  Let cool and roll into balls.  Roll balls into coconut and place on wax paper.  Chill in refrigerator.
