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.
- Ready In:
- 1 (12 ounce) box vanilla wafers, crushed into crumbs
- 1⁄2 lb ground blanched almond
- 4 ounces white chocolate, melted
- 1⁄4 cup tequila
- 1⁄4 cup orange marmalade
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- granulated sugar, for decoration
- Mix the crushed vanilla wafers with the ground almonds.
- In a blender process the tequila, orange marmalade, lime juice and corn syrup'til smooth.
- Stir melted white chocolate and tequila mixture into crumb mixture.
- Shape into 1" balls and roll in granulated sugar.
- Store in refrigerator.

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.
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
