Angel Delights Recipe


Angel Delights

¼ cup unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

1 ½ cups chopped pitted dates (8 oz.)

1/8 tsp salt

1 tsp. vanilla

2 cups toasted rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies

1 cup shredded coconut


Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

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.

Add salt, vanilla, cereal and coconut; stir well to combine.

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.            4 dozen
