re: 2018 Edition of Recipe Collection Now Available!
Not sure if I've posted this here but this is an old school classic that my mom has been making since the 60s.

Everyone I share them with love them because they are a unique Christmas treat and while time-consuming they are incredibly easy to make since there's only like 5 ingredients.

Orange Balls

*I recommend you double this recipe since you can't really find 6oz frozen concentrate these days.

1 lb vanilla wafers mini work.. Basically a whole package
1 stick unsalted butter
1 6oz can frozen orange juice
1 lb confectionary sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans

Put wafers into 1 gallon freezer bag and smash with a rolling pin until it turns to dust.

Cream butter orange juice and sugar together in large bowl

Add remaining ingredients and mash together. Smaller balls work better, drop into bowl of powdered sugar.

Before rolling into balls, put "dough" in fridge a couple hours to make them harder and the powdered sugar won't absorb into them and disappear after rolling in it. It also won't stick to your hands.

I found filling the sugar bowl up with 20-30 balls then shaking it around and freezing 3-4 out at a time with your hand like a cage allows you to shake the excess off while leaving perfect snowballs.

Serve chilled from fridge.. If they get too warm the butter will absorb the powdered sugar coating.

1 1/2 hours into the rolling process...
