2 sticks margarine

¾ cup sugar

8 ounces chopped dates

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups Rice Krispies

1 cup finely chopped pecans

Powdered sugar
Combine margarine, sugar, and dates in a medium saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat and boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Combine Rice Krispies in a large bowl. Pour date mixture and mix together well. Cool completely and form into small balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar and store in an airtight container.
