  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped pitted dates (don't use already chopped dates)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes


  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  • In a large cold skillet, combine the brown sugar, dates, and eggs. Cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly for about 10 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture becomes a thick paste.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla, cereal, and coconut until well combined.
  • Let cool slightly, then when cool enough to handle, squeeze and roll the mixture into 1-inch balls.
  • Place on a lined baking sheet and refrigerate until chilled. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
