    So yummy! Coconut and dates are apparently best friends! Love the flavor and texture. The sweet and sour glaze makes this treat extra outstanding. Thanks for this easy recipe!

    I had a hard time when trying to boil the mixture. Didn't seem to have enough moisture to actually boil, and kind of burned instead. The actual final product looks nothing like the picture. What did I do wrong??
