Growing up we had this cute family that I would babysat for! Every year, the mom would bring our family these yummy date balls for Christmas. A few years ago the date balls were brought up in a conversation, and the lady I was talking to said it was her recipe, so Candy gets the credit for these delicious little morsels! They are super easy to make and amazing! They are a great addition to goody plates at Christmas time.
8 oz. chopped dates
1 cube real butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups Rice Krispies
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
Cookie scoop so all balls are the same size-I use this one.
Instructions: In a frying pan or saucepan, combine dates, butter, and sugar. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. Take off heat and add Rice Krispies and chopped pecans. Stir until combined. Roll into 1" balls and roll in coconut. Place on a parchment lined pan to finish cooling.
Gather ingredients. Chop pecans.
In a frying pan or saucepan combine chopped dates, butter, and sugar.
Cook on medium heat for ten minutes or until mixture looks like the picture below.
Add pecans and Rice Krispies. Mix until combined.
I use a cookie scoop to form all the balls (totally not necessary, but I do love that they are all the same size). This here is my favorite!!!
Roll the balls in coconut, pushing the coconut into the date balls. Place on a parchment lined sheet pan to finish cooling.
