Beulah's Delights


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 bag flaked coconut


  1. Put Rice Krispies and walnuts in large bowl
  2. Fill one bowl of coconut and one bowl of ice water for each person rolling (see notes below)
  3. Put butter, sugar, dates, and egg in medium sauce pan
  4. Heat on med-low stirring constantly
  5. Bring to a boil, let boil 5 minutes, still stirring constantly
  6. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla
  7. Pour date mixture over Rice Krispies and walnuts, mix well
  8. Dip your hands in ice water then scoop and roll a tablespoon full of cookie mix into a ball
  9. Roll cookie in coconut and place on plate

Notes:  you need to move quickly as the coconut will not stick if the mix gets too cool – we usually use 2 people to roll a single batch – you can make several batches at once just add at least one extra roller for each batch – if the mix gets too cool you can put it in a plastic bowl and warm it in the microwave, just be very careful as it tends to get hot spots
