A delicious holiday treat
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 3 cups of Rice Krispies cereal, regular or Gluten Free
  • 1 cup of finely chopped dates
  • 1 Tbs of butter or ghee
  • ½ tsp of ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of dried grated unsweetened coconut
  • waxed paper
  1. In a pot or skillet, melt the butter or ghee.
  2. When it's warm, add in the chopped dates, sugar, vanilla, cardamom, and beaten eggs.
  3. Stir continuously on a medium heat. You don't want this stuff to get too hot or over done as it will then stiffen and crumble.
  4. What you're looking for is a smooth, thick, creamy texture.
  5. Bring the mixture to a light boil and let it bubble for 3 minutes still stirring constantly.
  6. After 3 minutes of cooking, pour the mixture into the Rice Krispies.
  7. Mix them together with either a wooden or Teflon spoon.
  8. Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes, or until you are able to handle it comfortably.
  9. Grease your hands lightly with butter (these little suckers are sticky) and scoop Tablesoon sized balls out of the mixture. Roll them between your hands.
  10. Set them onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper to cool further.
  11. When they've cooled, roll them in the dried coconut, and you're good to go.
