These easy-to-make treats are inspired by the classic British dessert: sticky toffee pudding. As a decorating option, instead of sanding sugar, roll them in confectioners' sugar combined with a large pinch of ground cinnamon.



  1. Put the dates, brown sugar and butter in a microwave-safe medium bowl and cover. Microwave on high in 1-minute increments, stirring in between, until the butter has melted.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add the walnuts, orange zest, vanilla, salt and graham crackers and pulse until the mixture comes together into a stiff and slightly tacky ball. Scoop heaping teaspoonfuls of dough and roll them into balls. Refrigerate the balls until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. Roll the chilled balls in sanding sugar. The sticky toffee balls can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
