Got Balls?

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.

I may have to give those a try Lisa. They look easy and the orange would make them so zesty. Thanks!

I've been absent from Blogland for awhile but I picked the right time to visit. This recipe sounds great! And since we're having a party soon these will be included in the offerings. Thanks for sharing it with us.
