Easy Last Minute Christmas Candy - Retro Date Nut Rice Krispies Balls

My neighbor has made these for years and sure enough she served them last night on her holiday tray. It's officially Christmas!
1 stick butter
1 c. brown sugar, packed
8 oz. box dates, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. nuts
1/2 c. coconut
2 c.Rice Krispies
Melt and bring to a boil the following: butter, brown sugar, chopped dates and vanilla. Stir the mixture constantly to prevent sticking. This will be like a thick paste. Then pour this mixture over Rice Krispies, nuts, and coconut; mix well. Let cool; then form into small balls and roll in confectioners' sugar.
