Melt in your mouth, creamy and date rich candy with roasted pecans.


  1. Boil sugar, milk and butter until it forms a soft ball in cool water (grandma's exact words) -- around 240 degrees.
  2. Fold in chopped dates and pecans, continue to cook until it pulls away from the pan (around 255 degrees).
  3. Pour onto wet cloth in log form - dust with powdered sugar and roll.
  4. Cool and cut into 20 pieces.
