Margarita Balls

Margarita Balls created by luvmybge

There are never enough of these! I could bring 12 dozen to my office and one co-worker (who's not a drinker) would eat them all. For those who don't like a strong alcohol flavor this is the way to go. Yumm! It's hard for me to estimate the prep time since I do bits and pieces at different times, so what I've listed is just assembly, not the time for blanching and grinding almonds and crushing cookies.

    Before you make them, check the weight on the vanilla wafers. A box of Nabisco's used to be 12 oz...they're now 11 oz. That missing 1 oz makes a difference. I made Jack Daniels Balls recently and they turned out mushy...didn't realize the weight difference until it was too late.<br/><br/>Making this recipe this weekend.

    Yum! Made as instructed. Lime or lemon marmelade is a good suggestion and also some triple sec could help for more margarita kind of zesty flavor. Rolling the balls in citrus infused sugar with a pinch of salt might be great, too.

    These were quit a hit at my job too.However I joking told everyone not to eat them till they're shift was over,because we drive for a city transit company.These are delish!!! I think for the full flavor one must use only the best ingredients.I have used lesser quality marmalade and bottled lime juice and that was a mistake.I also think letting them mellow in an airtight container for a few days makes even better

    Wasn't too impressed with these. Was expecting more of a margarita flavor than what these were. They were tasty, but not even close to what I would expect with the tequila/lime taste of margaritas. More of an orange ball than anything.
