Dessert with Dates

I really wanted to thank the lady who has invented this wonderful dessert dish. I have seen this recipe in one of the dessert-round-ups but I am unable to pin point which one it is. Its been a while. Thanks dear unknown blogger!
Its fairly simple to make this dessert and it practically takes only 10 minutes!

Dates: Seedless 20 (de-seed if you cant find seedless dates)
Cashews: 5, broken
Raisins: 10
Pecans or Almonds: a few, broken
Clarified butter/Ghee: 2 tbsp
Coconut: Dry or fresh, grated, about 1/4 cup (I used dry coconut)

Mash the dates with a wooden spatula.
Heat ghee in a small pan and roast cashews, raisins, pecans for a few minutes or until the dry fruits turn golden brown.
Add the above to the mashed dates and mix. Make small balls out of the mixture and roll in to the grated coconut.

Award Time!
