Original recipe yields 45 balls



  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut, vanilla wafer crumbs, pecans, orange juice concentrate, vanilla and bourbon. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  2. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, and roll in confectioners' sugar. If not serving right away, give them a fresh roll in the sugar just before serving.

I think I would assemble them this way, to make sure the flavors were evenly distributed: Mix together the orange juice concentrate, vanilla extract and whiskey. Add the other ingredients and stir until blended.



had a hard time getting these to set!! Were very sticky when I was trying to roll into the balls!!!



Good - something a little different from our usual. They did not freeze well for me, but that is probably my fault. Everyone who tried one said they were great, but no one ate more than a couple. I had lots of leftovers that had to be trashed after a big Christmas party followed by my unsuccessful freezing attempt.
