Rice Krispie Date Balls
This is an absolutely tasty treat that comes together in an instant - butter, sugar and dates are melted to a goo and in go some nuts and rice krispies... Once cooled, these are rolled into delicious morsels. Will be great to pack as a dessert for kids' lunchboxes or to serve as an after school snack . This is also a recipe that can be made with your kids (you can enlist their help to roll it into small balls once it has cooled down a bit). These tasted awesome when slightly warm and when cooled they become a bit chewy, but remain tasty.


Ingredients: (makes 15 one inch balls)
Rice Krispies cereal - 1.25 cups
Dates - 3 to 4 oz, pitted and chopped
Sugar - half cup or slightly lesser if the dates are very sweet
Butter - 3 tbsp
Walnuts - 2 tbsp, chopped (you could add more, or even substitute with other nuts) - optional

1) In a saucepan, melt together the butter and sugar on a low-medium flame. Then add the finely chopped dates and continue to stir and cook until the dates melt into the butter, sugar mixture and it's a brown gooey mix (about 7 to 9 minutes)

2) Add the chopped walnuts (if using), followed by the rice krispies and stir until well coated and mixed.

3) Pour out onto a pan/plate and allow to cool just until you can touch/handle it without burning yourself. Roll into balls and the yummy snack is ready.

Isn't that easy?
