Frances Van Vynckt, 78, combined dates, toasted rice cereal and coconut into an easy no-bake treat that won EatingWell’s 2008 cookie contest.

Prep: 30 | Total Time: 30
  • 1/4 cup
    unsalted butter
  • 1 cup
  • 1 1/2 cups
    dates, (8 ounces), chopped pitted
  • 1/8 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • 2 cups
    toasted rice cereal,, such as Rice Krispie
  • 1 cup
    coconut, shredded
  1. Combine butter, sugar and dates in a large saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted, the sugar is no longer white and the dates are mostly melted, 8 to 15 minutes. The mixture should be a shiny, brown sticky mass. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add salt, vanilla, cereal and coconut; stir well to combine.
  3. When cool enough to handle, squeeze and roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until chilled.
