Christmas just isn’t Christmas without date balls. We have been making these delicious treats and sharing these with family and friends for years. They are so rich, chewy and delicious. We hope you enjoy these as much as we do. Merry Christmas!
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
16 ounces chopped dates
1 cup walnuts, chopped
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
In saucepan, melt butter and sugar over low heat. Add dates and cook 3 minutes and remove from heat. Add nuts and Rice Krispies and stir until combined. When cool enough to handle, form small balls and roll in powdered sugar.

These are treats I remember loving from my childhood, but it doesn’t seem like people make them as much anymore during the holidays. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

We love them and it has been a tradition to make them every Christmas.
