      I just recommended these on a forum asking for ideal edible gifts for the holidays. I use an almost identical recipe, but have not added cherries before---nice idea for color! And the other reviewer is right---even "date haters" love these!

      Rich and wonderful flavor! I think I would reduce the butter by 1/4 cup next time, but these date balls were so good and very addictive! Thank you, Wildflour! Christmas 2009: I used 3/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup sugar (because I was using fresh California dates which I find to be very sweet). Still great to my taste! This is a very popular cookie, and the cook appreciates any no-bake cookie she can get! Thanks again for sharing your grandmother's recipe.

      I made these for work and one of my coworkers was enjoying them, eating them almost like M&Ms. She asked what all was in them (while consuming #3 or 8) I mentioned dates and she stops in her tracks and screams "but I don't like DATES!!" I simply said well you do now. :o) And she continued eating them. LOL Thanks for sharing. Connie

      I made these out of curiosity, the ingredients just caught my eye. I am sure glad I did, they are yummy. I think my grandkids will love them. Next time I make them I will boil a bit longer I think, maybe start the minute when the mix comes to a hard boil. Mine came out a bit soft, I had a hard time getting them to stay together. Finally just kind of mushed them together & they seem to be holding. Thanks for a unique treat!
