These are oh-so-good! I used my food processor to chop the dates and cherries, with the sugar to help prevent sticking together! These are rice krispie treats with a grown up taste! Will be making these again for the holidays! Thnx for posting, Gone to Kittencal's. Made for KcK's Forum.

absolutely loved these, I have a sweet tooth so I increased the sugar amount, I also think these get better with age, thanks for posted GTKK'sF!
