    Hanka's Note:

    I have got this recipe in a cookie exchange party. One of my favorite Christmas events. These no-bake cookies are amazing even if you don't fancy dates you will enjoy them. They are buttery little crunchy and easy to make.

      I had a few problems here - pantry problems not problems with the recipe. I had to use half dates, half sultanas and my rice bubbles did not quite stretch and I needed to use 1/2 cup oats. I rolled some balls and pressed some mixture into a tin like a bar slice. I headed off to Costco to get more coconut for rolling plus other items and on my return found that the vultures had visited. Two balls remained and two pieces of my slice. I took a photo of the remains - see above. My result was obviously successful and addictive.

      Wonderful little treat's that we all loved.
      Easy to make and not too sweet, the family thought these were just divine.
      I followed the recipe exactly as written and these really turned out so well, and looked so great.
      Thanks Hanka for posting such a wonderful recipe.
