This family favorite is a staple of the holiday season. It's one of my all-time favorite snacks, and you truly cannot eat just one!
- 1 stick butter (or margarine)
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 8 oz. package of dates, cut fine
- 4 oz. flaky coconut
- 1 cup chopped nuts (peanuts or walnuts)
- 2 cups Rice Krispies
- Powdered sugar
Combine the butter, brown sugar, dates, and coconut in a heavy saucepan. Start a timer when you put it on the stove and cook for 6 minutes. Do not overcook!
After the timer sounds, add the chopped nuts and the Rice Krispies, mix well, and let it cool. Shape the mixture into balls, and roll in powdered sugar while still warm.
