“This is a great old Texas recipe. Everyone seems to like it, but it's obviously only for grown-ups.”

Directions

  1. Using a food processor or blender, process all of the vanilla wafers and pretzels to fine crumbs.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all of the crumbs with the confectioners' sugar. In another bowl, mix together the cream cheese, margarita mix, tequila and Grand Marnier, stir into the crumb mixture. Divide dough into two pieces, wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Divide the white sugar into two small bowls. Add the zest of 1 lime to each bowl. Stir the food coloring into one of the bowls. Unwrap dough and roll into walnut sized balls. Roll half of the balls in the green sugar, and the other half in the white sugar. Store in the refrigerator in the unlikely event that there are any left!

Very Good and VERY SWEET! Might consider cutting back on the powdered sugar next time. I made them for a family pool party and the in-laws love them!

I just did not enjoy the texture of these I had an idea of what the flavor may be and I was disappointed. I thought the taste of a margarita would be more apparent it just was not there.

These were an interesting change of pace. Just enough alcohol, not overpowering.
