directions

  • In a food processor, combine the vanilla wafers, 2 cups of the confectioner's sugar, cocoa powder, orange juice concentrate, and corn syrup.
  • Process until the cookies are ground to crumbs and mixture is evenly blended.
  • Add the pecan pieces and pulse process until the nuts are finely chopped.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and form into 1" balls.
  • Roll balls in 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar** to coat.
  • Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
  • **We always rolled our balls in regular granulated sugar. If we made them at Christmas time, we dyed some of the sugar green and some of the sugar red and rolled 1/2 the balls in the green sugar and 1/2 the balls in the red sugar.

    with regard to orange chocolate balls. If I substitute orange extract for oj concentrate how much extract should i use and should I add water to make up for fluid in juice?
  2. jo.martielli
    Can I substitute orange extract for the OJ? I ask because I want to ship and am afraid of spoilage.

    I am assuming you are using frozen orange juice concentrate. should that be frozen or thawed when you put it into the food processor?

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!! I've been looking for this recipe for YEARS! I used to make these with my mother. It wasn't something I missed until she was gone and I never found the recipe in her cookbooks. The only thing she did different was she used coconut instead of pecans. But I made it with the pecans, popped one in my mouth and almost wept. Thank you for giving me back a piece of my childhood!
