With the Hindu of festival of light upon us I decided to make some Diwali sweets to mark the occasion.
They went down a treat last year and as they are called sweets it means I can get the little man to eat dates without a second thought!!

250g dried dates
68g ground almonds
1/4 tin of condensed milk
desicated coconut

Roughly chop the dates up and put them into a heavy pan.
Add the condensed milk and ground almonds.
Heat gently and stir so that they don't catch on the bottom of the pan.

It doesn't take long before it forms a soft ball.

Take off the heat and leave to cool.
Once they are cool you can take out a spoonful at a time, roll into a ball and coat with coconut by rolling them in a dish.
