I’ve done a lot of Christmas baking in my time and sometimes I want something simple, quick, easy, and oven-less. If that’s the case with you, I’ve got the perfect treat – Medjool Date Balls. Only three basic ingredients are needed – Medjool dates, coconut, and pecans. Any extras are up to you. Now, it’s important you use Medjool dates, not the regular dried dates you find in the baking section. Medjool dates are fresh dates and they’re found in the produce section.
Makes 60 balls.
Medjool dates are naturally sweet, but if you want to decorate them a bit for Christmas, you could sprinkle some colorful decorative sugars over top. Also, a fresh grating of orange zest adds a nice piquancy.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
