Rice Krispie Coconut Date Ball Christmas Cookie Recipe
  • ½ stick margarine
  • 8 oz chopped pitted dates
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies
  • ½ cup toasted macadamia nuts
  • 4 oz angel flake coconut
  1. In a medium saucepan cook margarine, dates and sugar over medium low heat until dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat and add one egg stirring vigorously so as not to make scrambled eggs. Your mixture will turn a light shiny caramel color after adding the egg. At this point you can also add the vanilla.
  3. Return to heat and cook three additional minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in nuts and Rice Krispies.
  5. Use a small scoop to portion cookie mixture out into uniform balls and roll in coconut to coat.
  6. Recipe makes about two dozen cookies.
