Skillet Date Balls

I mentioned in a previous post (Eggnog Spritz Cookies with Rum Glaze) that I made a two different cookies for our Community Group Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.  These Skillet Date Balls are absolutely fabulous...and oh so addictive.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped dates
1 egg
2 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 cup pecans, chopped finely
1 teaspoon vanilla

1.  Melt butter over low heat.
2.  Add sugar and blend.
3.  Add chopped dates. 
4.  Stir in egg (stirring like a crazy person, so it won't curdle).
5.  Cook 5 minutes, stirring all the time.
6.  Add Rice Krispies, nut and vanilla.  Mix well.
7.  Using a teaspoon, drop into powdered sugar.  Cover with powdered sugar.
8. Roll (or press) into balls while hot.
9.  Enjoy your tasty new obsession.
