Orange Balls

6 oz. can frozen orange juice, thawed
12 oz. vanilla wafers, crushed
1 can flaked coconut
1 box powdered sugar
1/2 cup margarine, melted

Mix together crushed vanilla wafers, orange juice, & powdered sugar. Add melted margarine & chopped pecans. Form into small balls. Roll in flaked coconut. Chill well before serving. You may choose to roll balls in powdered sugar in place of the coconut.

Yum, I have had these before. They are very good. I did not realize that they were a no bake cookie.

I just made Katherine's Orange Balls, but I used frozen pineapple juice and added 1/2 oz. of Meyer's rum - Pina Colada Balls! Thanks for the recipe, Kat - they are quick, easy and yummy!

Are these more like a cooky or candy? I was wondering if you freeze them and dip them in chocolate!

hmmm... interesting, Kaylinda! I'd say they are more like a cookie - all those vanilla wafers are crushed up and form the base. But now that you mention it, chocolate with the orange flavor would be quite tasty - and they would probably freeze well. great idea!!
