Date Balls

This is a quick and tasty sweet treat that you can feel good about eating and giving your kids.  My friend Stephanie made a similar recipe for our Ragnar race.  They were the bomb.

The recipe says to roll them into large marble or golf ball sized but I prefer them a bit smaller.  (Ha ha, she likes small balls. You guys are like 11 year olds.)
