Small, easily-consumed pastries in the form of balls are a popular choice for exquisite appetisers and desserts at dinner gatherings. They are beautiful to look at on a dessert table and quickly disappear since guests can eat them with their hands. The coconut coating on these date balls makes them an all-time favourite. Even if you don’t like coconut, they are a terrific summertime snack since you can decorate them anyway you choose.
Coconut date balls tips
To bind and provide texture, try using Tennis or Marie Biscuits. Tennis Biscuits, on the other hand, have a more distinctive flavour since they are more buttery and include a hint of coconut. The dates may be chopped as finely as you want, or you can throw them in a food processor and give them a quick whirl. There must be some preservation of texture. Another delicious twist on this snack is to add some chocolate powder to the batter and sprinkle some almonds on top.
When you want to feel warm inside without overheating in the South African sun, cool sweets are the way to go. Indulge in one of these coconut date balls this weekend!
