Family Favorite Holiday Treat

It’s almost Christmas you guys!  I know that means a lot of cooking and baking and preparations of said cooking and baking, am I right?  Well around my family, we have a favorite that is reserved for this time of year.  It’s a recipe from my Grandma, though where she found the recipe I’m not sure.  So if you’ve seen it somewhere else let me know!

Anyway, Grandma always called these “Angel Balls” and they are delicious! They include dates, coconut, and chopped pecans… YUM!  Here’s the ingredients list you’ll need:

  • 1/2 c. butter (I used unsalted)
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped dates
  • 1 c. shredded coconut
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 c. chopped pecans
  • 2 c. Rice Krispies
  • powdered sugar

Directions:  In a saucepan, melt butter. Add salt, dates, coconut, sugar, and brown sugar.  Cook 6 minutes, stirring constantly.  Allow to cool.  Add vanilla, pecans, and Rice Krispies.  Form into balls and roll in powdered sugar.
