Ingredients:  
1 cup sugar
1 4 oz. package dates
1 egg
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts - your choice)

Directions:
Directions:
Combine first four ingredients in saucepan on medium low heat. Slowly heat to boil. Boil for exactly 5 minutes - set the timer! This is the process where the butter, sugar, and dates are caramelized, and where I usually goof it up!
Remove from heat and add vanilla, cereal, and nuts. Form into balls no bigger than walnut size, and roll in your choice - shredded coconut or walnuts. Place on parchment paper and store in air-tight container.

Personal Notes:
Melinda Taylor was an RN in the Recovery room at St. Mary's and her husband Chad was a student pilot at Vance in the 90's. She brought them to work once, and Lynn loved them! She was sweet enough to share them with me.
