Date Coconut Balls

Nuvita Biscuits

Traditionally date balls are made very simply.  They take a package of dates and roll them into balls.  They then stuff each one with a whole almond and then roll in coconut or pistachios.

These date balls are very delicious and so easy to make.  Why are they non-traditional?  Because I use Rice Crispies. If you do not have Rice Crispies you can fry up some basmati rice.  Just heat some oil real hot and add in a few pieces of rice at a time.


  • 1 7.5 oz. Package of dates, finely chopped,
  • 1/4 lb. butter,
  • 1 egg beaten slightly with fork,
  • 1 bag fine coconut,
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 1 cup sugar,
  • 2 cup rice crisps cereal


In a large pot, combine dates, butter, sugar and egg.  Bring to a boil stirring constantly until dates melted.  Add vanilla and cereal and roll into small balls and then roll them in coconut.  Place in refrigerator until molded.

    I want something simple and affordable, but not just your average chocolate chip cookie. Anything creative is great, but I want something that I can make easily and is affordable. Thanks!
