This recipe has been handed down in my family for generations. I don't know its origin, but we make it every Christmas! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!! It's crunchy and gooey at the same time and gets better the longer it sits!!! Just keep it covered so it doesn't dry out."

2 1/2 C. raw oats
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 C. firmly packed brown sugar
2 C. butter - melted
2 C. chopped pecans
2 boxes chopped dates
1 C. sugar
