In a 2 or 3 quart saucepan mix sugar and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring all the time. Boil slowly, stirring often until candy reaches soft ball stage. Add dates just before candy is done. Remove from heat. Add nuts and vanilla and mix well. Let stand at room temperature without stirring until lukewarm. Beat until candy begins to hold its shape. Turn out on board and work with hands until soft and creamy. Shape into a roll 11/2 " across and about 18" long . Spread 3/4 cup nuts on a sheet of wax paper about the length of the roll. Roll the candy in the nuts until it is well covered. Wrap in wax paper and let stand until firm. Cut into 1 to 2 " pieces.
