I used the back end of a large ladle to pulverize the wafers in the wax bag they came in - kept things from getting too messy. After considering other reviewers' comments, I elected to add a shot of Cointreau to the mixture (for additional moisture and more orange flavor). I found them to be delicious and the smell was wonderful. I also found that the mixture was easier to work with when making the balls on the smallish side, and to dip my fingertips in water about every ½ dozen or so (the extra moisture helps when forming them!) I'm bringing them to a Cinco de Mayo cocktail party tonight and will give a couple dozen of these as a hostess gift. Thanks for a unique and tasty treat.

I think these are just okay, but I'm not allowed to make anything else for our company get togethers. Ever.

I make these every Christmas to give as little gifts. I think the most important thing is to make them at least 4-5 days before you plan on serving them. Store in fridge. The longer they sit, the better they are. I also always add a little extra tequila to the mix!
