Make a Date with this Sweet Trail Mix Recipes

Janet Groene's 
Make a Date Gorp
    This is a sweet dessert gorp easily packaged in snack bags for the trail or lunchbox. Mixing is messy but it’s easier if you use a spatula sprayed with nonstick coating.

1 stick butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
16-ounce package chopped dates
1/4 cup water
3 cups crisp rice cereal
Optional: 1 cup chopped nuts
    Bring butter, sugar, dates and water to a boil for 2 minutes. Fold in rice cereal and nuts until no dry spots remain. Pack in a buttered  9 X 13-inch pan. Cool, cut in squares.
