Call these sweet, fruity morsels date truffles! They're a festive alternative to chocolate at Christmastime and can be made well in advance for unexpected guests. They freeze well and keep for weeks in the fridge.
Instead of coconut, you could choose to roll these in icing sugar. And if you prefer a more aromatic take on this recipe, try adding up to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and a pinch of ground cloves.
This recipe was easy to make and was very delicious. Every one wanted the recipe. - 21 Jul 2008
I made these for my family at Christmas and they asked me to make them every year as a special treat. Delicious and freeze well too. - 21 Jul 2008
These have been in my family for years and we all (11 of us) love it. Easy to make and always a favourite at Christmas. - 21 Jul 2008
