Joni's Date Logs - Christmas

12 cup butter or 12 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
3 cups dates, chopped
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 cup walnuts, chopped
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 (7 ounce) bag sweetened flaked coconut


Put butter, sugar, dates, and eggs in a heavy bottomed pan. Bring to boil over medium heat, and stir. When it starts to boil, stir constantly (about 10 minutes) until the liquid starts pulling away from the sides of the pan while you are stirring it, then remove from heat. Add vanilla, walnuts and Rice Krispies, and mix in well. Butter your hands and put enough mixture in the palm of your hand (about 2 T.). Roll into logs with your hands.The logs should be about 3" long by 1/2" wide. (The mixture will be hot, so be careful and work quickly). Roll each log in flaked coconut and place on waxed paper until completely cool. Store in a plastic container with cover.
