White Chocolate Date Balls (No Bake)

White Chocolate Date Balls

One of my husband’s favorite cookies are date balls, and I make them several times a year during the holidays and just for the fun of it. One day I decided to give them a twist, and I added white chocolate chips in place of some of the Rice Krispies and walnuts.
These cookies need to stay in the refrigerator to prevent the white chocolate from becoming too soft.  Chilled from the fridge, they are sweetly decadent with a pleasant crunch. My husband enjoyed them, although they were a bit too sweet for his preference. Nothing can ever be “too sweet” for my taste buds, and these were finished off by me in the proceeding days.
