Coconut Date Balls
 
Coconut Date Balls
These may be served like cookies and are nice to pack in tins to give as gifts.
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped dates (one 8-oz. package)
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies
  • 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
Combine the butter, sugar, milk, salt and egg in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, continuing to stir. Remove from the heat. Add the vanilla, dates and Rice Krispies. Mix well. Cool 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Shape into balls about 1-inch in diameter and roll in the coconut. Store between layers of waxed paper in tins or in plastic storage bags. Yields about 40 one-inch balls.
