For Domestic Witch's Christmas Balls blog party.
I've had this recipe for at least 15 years. It came from a dear friend who gifted me with a tin of them one Christmas. I had to have the recipe.
Sharon's Orange Balls.
1 lb Vanilla Wafers, crushed
1 6oz frozen OJ, thawed
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
1 box confectioner's sugar
1 stick butter
1 package orange Jello (or cheap gelatin flavoring) Just the powder. Don't make jello. :)
On Sharon's recipe card there is a line for serves. She wrote: "A Million"
Mix together all above. Chill.
Roll into balls, then in jello. (orange flavored)
For Yule and Christmas, I use red or green "jello" powder.
My kids can not get enough of these. They eat them while waiting for the real food. I had to stop rolling out the entire batch at once or they would all be gone before dinner.
