Lebanese Sweet Spheres

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!

Date balls! Haha. Boys will be boys, I guess. But they better be careful at work!
