¾ cup whole pitted dates
½ cup pecan, toasted
3 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp cream cheese, softened
2 tsp brandy, orange liqueur or orange juice
½ cup finely chopped nuts, date sugar, coconut or toasted wheat germ
1. Place cereal, dates and pecans in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add honey, cream cheese and brandy (or orange liqueur or orange juice) and pulse until a stiff dough forms.
2. Scoop tablespoon-size portions and shape with greased hands into balls. Roll each ball in chopped nuts (or date sugar or coconut or wheat germ). Place on wax paper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving or storing.
To Make Ahead: Store in an airtight container, separating balls with layers of wax paper, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
