A delicious and gluten free holiday treat with dates and cereal.
By Kathy Gori
A couple of weeks ago I heard from my friend Bibi in Nepal. I love getting recipes from her because she whips up the coolest stuff, much of it gluten free. After seeing the recipes on Marocmamas site and here at The Colors of Indian Cooking, Bibi mentioned she had a couple more twists to the tale. She sent me her recipe for Holiday Balls.
This recipe is something that Bibi makes for the Festival of Eid-ul-Fitr when the fasting of Ramadan is broken, and they’re definitely the perfect sweet treat to celebrate any holiday with. My family is going to be seeing a lot of these balls come Halloween, Thanksgiving, Channuka and Christmas. Did I also mention they’re fast and easy to make and they’re made with Rice Krispies, either regular or gluten free? Something new, and yet totally old school. So here, courtesy of Bibi, is the recipe.Print
To store them, keep them in an airtight container, no need to refrigerate. Bibi says that they ought to keep fresh a couple of days, but they never last that long at her house and once you’ve tasted one you’ll understand why. I want to thank Bibi for sharing this wonderful recipe.
