2 cups uncrushed cornflakes (or bran or wheat flakes)
1/3 cup diced pitted dates
2/3 cup diced dried apricots
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
Using a rolling pin, crush cornflakes between 2 sheets of waxed paper. Stir crushed cornflakes, dates, apricots, and pecans until well mixed in a large bowl. Melt honey and butter in small pan; blend in vanilla. Pour over cornflake mixture; mix thoroughly. Chill 30 minutes. Use 1 tablespoon of mixture to form each ball. Roll balls in sugar, if desired. Garnish each with a strip of apricot. Serve immediately or cover and chill until needed.
