These are really yummy - keep them in the fridge and you have a lovely chewy, crispy ball to bite into. We love dates so they went down a treat - more like sweets than anything else. Think I might make them as a tray bake next time though as rolling the mixture into balls was quite messy. - 17 May 2016
