Outstanding recipe. My cousin was visiting and was telling me about these date balls she made. Of course she didnt have her recipe with her. Recipezaar to the rescue. As I was reading off the ingredients of other recipes posted on here she kept saying hers had no egg and used white sugar. When we came to this recipe she said this one sounded just like the one she used. We made one batch, sampled and then made another. So easy. So simple. So good!! Thank you for posting this recipe. It will be in my Christmas goodies cookbook for sure.
