Date Nut Candy Recipe

Even though my two grown sons aren't big "sweets eaters", they think these candies are exceptional. The big peanut butter flavor is a hit combined with holiday staples like walnuts and dates.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound white candy coating, coarsely chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Shape into 3/4-in. balls; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.
