These are always a hit! You won't believe it's got dates in it, tastes more like chocolate!

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I LIKE, I LIKE! These are so easy to make, & great tasting, especially for those of us who enjoy coconut! I'd originally intended making these just for myself, but instead they were put out as sweek finger-food for a small group I host each month! These were gone in no time! Many thanks for posting this recipe!
