Alternative version of my recipe for Algerian Date Balls that calls for anise in the recipe. My husband and I don't care for the anise, so I tweeked the recipe and used the rice crispy cereal version. my husband loves them. You may also decide to roll into flaked coconut tinted with food coloring for a festive look instead of the powdered sugar. :) Prep time includes cooling time.
