  1. I have made these about 4 times because they are one of the best treats I have tasted. I found that I can easily fill 20 medjool dates using a tablespoon size cookie scoop. I keep them frozen and pop one out when I need a sweetness fix. Delicious!!

  2. These are the BEST! I make them VERY often! My mom and fiancé love them so much too. Thank you for the yummy recipe 🙂
