6cupssweetened flaked coconut, plus more for rolling
Mix the Rice Krispies, nuts, and coconut in a large bowl and set aside.
In the bottom of a double boiler, bring water to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer.
Stir together the margarine, sugar, egg, and dates in the top of the double boiler and then place it over the bottom. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the dates begin to break down, about an hour. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Add the date mixture to the Rice Krispies mixture and stir thoroughly.
Make sure the mixture is cool enough to safely handle, then roll tablespoonfuls into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in coconut.
Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
