Yesterday I made with Helen small snack balls. They are easy to make with a toddler and they also taste good. You can vary the amounts of the ingredients or mix in something else...
You will need:
1 jar of date paste (approx. 400 grams)
1 packet of cookies (approx. 350 grams- I used pettit beurres)
1/2 cup of finely chopped nuts (we used pecan nuts)
1/4 cup sesame (use whole sesame if you have)
1/2 cup raisins- soaked in water or sweet wine
coconut for decoration (you can also use sesame)
Smash the cookies, mix them well with everything else.
Form small balls, roll them in coconut and place them in small paper liners.
Keep in the fridge. I even froze some.
