Before I take off for Florida I want to leave you with a delicious holiday recipe. If you do make them be prepared for many compliments and requests for the recipe.

Millie's Rum Balls

1 package chopped dates
1 stick margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups rice crispies
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coconut flakes

Cook first four ingredients on medium heat, stir occasionally. Cook until mixture just comes to a boil. Cool for about 15 minutes, add rice crispies, chopped nuts and flavorings. Mix well.

Wet hands and form into small balls, roll in coconut flakes.

Makes about 40 balls. Can be made in advance, freezes well.

Hint: Do not use a Corning pot, mixture could burn, best to use an aluminum or stainless steel pot.

I probably will not post for a while, have to get unpacked, go grocery shopping, get the computer connected, contact Florida friends and see what damage the hurricane has caused in the Delray area.

In the meantime I want to wish all my blogging friends a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah and a joyous New Year.
