Directions for this recipe are incomplete! Cooking time is NOT given and is a very important function of the recipe. As written this recipe will NOT turn out, it is impossible to roll these into balls. Butter, sugar, etc. must be cooked to a firm ball stage.



love date balls - made a couple of changes though: used 1 stick of margarine, omitted eggs, and the coconut. rolled the balls in powdered sugar.



This recipe was easy to make and was very delicious. Every one wanted the recipe.
