Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat.
Add dates and simmer until the entire mixture is soft.
It takes a good 20-30 minutes, even with constant stirring and mushing!
Remove from heat.
Temper the egg into the mixture and cook together for another few minutes
Break the biscuits into small pieces. The easiest way would be to use a rolling pin.
Add the date mixture to the biscuits and mix to combine.
Refrigerate and allow to cool. You can place it in the fridge to speed up this process
Roll mixture into ping pong-sized balls and coat in unsweetened coconut.
