This recipe came from a cookbook, the name has slipped my memory. I do not know who to give credit for this recipe and this is the first time I made these. It has been snowing here so I thought my guests at Thanksgiving dinner might like them.

2 3/4 cups finely crushed vanilla wafers
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped almonds
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, defrosted
Flaked coconut ( I used between 1-2 cups)
Line airtight container with wax paper. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine wafers, sugar , almonds, butter and concentrate. Stir until well blended (mixture will be crumbly).
Shape mixture into 3/4 inch balls. Roll balls in coconut and place in container. Store in refrigerator. Makes about 3 dozen.
I thought if you wanted to make them more of an adult only version ( like burbon balls) you could substitute orange liqueur`. I have not tried this but thought it might be a nice Holiday gift idea. ENJOY!


  1. These look so pretty and sound so delicious! Glad they are going into the family cookbook~
