Date Treats

August 26, 2010

I made a batch of these for my brother’s birthday on Tuesday, and they were yummy.I usually don’t eat dates… but this way they are great (totally unhealthy-but yummy)

1 x 200g packet marie biscuits
185g brick margarine (I used butter)
125m l (1⁄2 cup) white sugar (I think it could do with less)
250g dates, chopped
Coconut for sprinkling

1. Place the biscuits in a plastic bag. Break them into smaller, but not too fine, pieces using a rolling pin. Place in a bowl.
2. Combine the margarine, sugar and chopped dates in a saucepan and heat until margarine has melted.
3. Pour the melted mixture onto the broken biscuits and mix well.
4. Spoon the mixture into a Swiss roll tin (roughly 25cm x 15cm) and press down firmly.
5. Leave to set. Sprinkle coconut over and cut into squares or bars.
Makes about 24.
