Lebanese Sweet Spheres
February 11, 2017
We had to call these Lebanese Sweet Spheres, because the boys in the office couldn't help from snickering when I referred to them as date balls. 🙁 No matter what you call them, they are delicious -- very sweet but with no added sugar.
This treat contains nuts, so please be sure no one in the vicinity has nut allergies!
