My brother’s mom-in-law introduced me to these ever so moreish, melt in the mouth treats. They are seriously addictive and I truly have to limit myself to just a couple at a time. They also make a great gift idea for your Christmas hampers.
2 cups sugar
500g pkt dates chopped
2 eggs beaten
1½ pkts Marie biscuits crumbed
2 tsp vanilla essence
Coconut for coating
