Frances Van Vynckt, 78, combined dates, toasted rice cereal and coconut into an easy no-bake treat that won EatingWell's 2008 cookie contest. Sounds fabulous. They say you can cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

Love dates, love coconut, what's not to love these no bake cookie balls! I had some choco krispies, used them and they are a great new treat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine butter, sugar and dates in a large saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted, the sugar is no longer white and the dates are mostly melted, 8 to 15 minutes. The mixture should be a shiny, brown sticky mass. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add salt, vanilla, cereal and coconut; stir well to combine.
  3. When cool enough to handle, squeeze and roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until chilled.
