Copy of catering1Amy: Christmas just isn’t Christmas without date balls. It is a family tradition to make these every holiday season. We all get in the kitchen and turn some Christmas music on, sing obnoxiously loud and make these as a family. 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.
Date Balls
This is what you need-

2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
16 ounces chopped dates
1 cup walnuts, chopped
2 cups Rice cereal
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
Powdered sugar

Roll baby roll-
Turn you on some Christmas tunes on and get your family in the kitchen to help. In a saucepan, melt your butter and sugar over low heat. Add the dates and stir continuously for about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and add your nuts, rice cereal and vanilla. The mixture will be thick and hard to stir but keep working at it until it’s all mixed up. When cool enough to handle, get your family to help you roll the mixture into small balls. Lastly, roll those baby’s in powdered sugar and enjoy.
