Candy for Dad

Filed under: Dessert, Fruit — ruralmomof3 @ 6:28 pm
My dad got me hooked on dates when I was little. I still love them and this recipe is one of my favorite ways to indulge in those sweet, sticky, chewy yummies!

Date Nut Balls

1 stick butter (no substitutes)
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. chopped dates

Cook until thick over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly and stir in:

2 c. Rice Krispies or similar

1/2 c. chopped walnuts or pecans

When cool enough for you to handle shape into balls and roll into:

Coconut – I preferr unsweetened flake coconut but regular sweetened will do.

Store in the fridge or freezer. If you freeze them, they may get a little stickier as they thaw but just roll in coconut again to fix the stick!

God is good- all the time. . . . 40.gif
