  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add dates, sugar, and eggs; cook and stir until mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the skillet, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; add crispy rice cereal and pecans. Stir cookie dough until well-mixed.
  2. Place coconut in a shallow bowl. Drop teaspoonfuls of cookie dough into coconut and roll to coat and form into balls. Let cookies cool, about 20 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Very good! It takes a bit of work, but if you have the ingredients measured out ahead of time, that makes it easier.
