directions

  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and form into 1" balls.
  • Roll balls in 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar** to coat.

  1. 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. Can I substitute orange extract for the OJ? I ask because I want to ship and am afraid of spoilage.

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

  1. Whoo-hoo-hoo, what a treat! I made these in about 5 minutes- the easiest part of my Christmas baking. I subbed agave nectar for corn syrup. They roll so perfectly and I think the prettiest balls are the ones I rolled in a mixture of red&green dyed sugar. This is a chocolaty, orangy keeper! Thanks so much!

  2. I can't wait to share these with my mom as one of her favorite flavor combinations is orange and chocolate. I can't believe how easy this recipe is... no cooking necessary. At first you taste the chocolate and then a second later the orange hits. I think these will satisfy any chocolate craving you may have. I tried rolling in the powdered sugar but the granulated sugar was so much prettier. They sparkled!

  3. 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!

  4. These are one of my favorite cookies. They're fast, easy and delicous. I usually used walnuts instead of pecans and granulated sugar to roll them in. I'm going to be making these right when I get home from grocery shopping. Thanks!
