I've been making these for years and they are always a huge hit. DO NOT boil longer than 3 minutes or it will turn into a crumbly mess that won't roll together.

a really classy take on a rice crispie treat! Loved these. I found that I was not making any headway with the double boiler so just poured the mixture into a teflon coated pan and heated on low til it boiled, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Nice and soft and found that you don't have to work quickly with these when attempting to roll, as the mixture stays nice and soft and pliable. Rolled in toasted coconut/chopped pecan mixture. I used mahjool dates and hand chopped into large bits. I found that the dates blended into the egg mixture and were not whole chopped in the cookie. That is a great thing for those that stick up their noses at dates. It more or less added a bit of a nutty taste to the mixture. Presents beautifully for the holiday trays, as well. thanks for this wonderful non-chocolate addition to a holiday tray!

Love these! I make these every holiday season to add to my cookie platters. A few times I have "saved" a batch that was over-boiled and became crumbly by stirring in a couple teaspoons of very hot water to reconstitute the mixture. As long as it has not burned that might make it easier to handle.
