Why I Love This Recipe

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. :)

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
