How to Make Walnut Date Balls

Gather your ingredients, pre measuring each of them to get started.


Cream the sugar and oleo together in a large, heavy saucepan until smooth.

Add the beaten egg and dates, stirring to incorporate.


Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly until it reaches a very thick texture. Remove from heat, add the vanilla extract, stirring well to fully incorporate. Cool the date mixture for at least ten minutes or so, or until it reaches a temperature you can handle.


Add chopped walnuts and Rice Krispies cereal, mixing well. Form into balls (helps to use a cookie dough scoop or butter your hands first!), dust with powdered confectioners sugar, or roll in toasted coconut.


These buttery walnut date balls are a holiday favorite in our home and make a delicious, fast, single-serve snack.
