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!!
68g ground almonds
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.
