Ingredients:  
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 (8 ounce) package chopped dates

Directions:
Directions:
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl that is big enough to allow room to add more ingredients and stir. Melt butter in saucepan add sugar and dates. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep the mixture from sticking. (Or you can use a candy thermometer and simmer till temperature reaches soft ball 240 degrees F)
Pour cooked mixture over the dry ingredients and shape into small balls. One easy way to form the balls is with a small melon ball scoop. Coat hands and melon ball scoop with butter and work into balls while the mixture is still warm. Cookies will firm up as they cool. Using a 1&1/4 inch melon ball scoop will make 36 -40 cookie balls. A single batch of this recipe makes enough cookies to fill a 6 inch diameter 2&1/2 tall standard Christmas cookie tin. It is better to make multiple single batches than double batches due to the limited time to work cookies into balls before they cool.
