Why I Love This Recipe

Such a yummy dessert.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 large eggs beaten
3/4 c sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 c Walnuts chopped very small chunk pieces
1 8oz pkg dates, chopped finely
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 c Rice Krispies cereal

Pow exerted sugar
Finely chopped walnuts


Beat the eggs, add sugar and beat well together.
Melt the butter in a pan and add the dates and egg mixture. Stir & cook until mixture thickens and turns brown (approx 3-5 minutes after the butters bubbled). Add the vanilla extract and stir.
Remove this entire mixture from the heat then begin adding the cereal and nut chunks. Cool slightly then form into balls. You can use an ice cream scooper to evenly form them.
Roll the newly formed balls into the coconut and nuts and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Refrigerate until firm
