This one is for my Mom. She is a big fan of this homemade candy. She lost her recipe, and I went in search of a substitute. She no longer cooks, so, I try to make this for her for our get-togethers. I found this version on AllRecipes. :)


  • 1 (12 oz.) package of vanilla wafers
  • 4 cups sifted confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (6 oz.) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup flaked coconut


  • Crush vanilla wafers to make fine crumbs.
  • (I put mine in batches into a 1 gallon, ziplock freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin.)
  • Add sugar, butter,orange juice concentrate and pecans and mix well.
  • Shape dough into 1 inch balls.
  • Roll balls in coconut.
  • Chill until firm.
  • I keep these refrigerated.
