It was too hot to turn on the oven, so I tried these and they were REALLY good - easy, too.

They are from The Prepared Pantry email booklet called "The No-Bake Cookie Guide".... toward the bottom of this page:

You click on the link and they send it to you by email. I've also done one of the Rice Krispie Bar variations in there, too.

Tropical Orange and Coconut Balls

Texture of pecan sandies

3-1/2 cups vanilla wafer cookie crumbs (a 12-oz. box will yield 4 cups - I measured)
2 cups powdered sugar
1-1/2 cups pecans, chopped (I used walnuts)
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed, undiluted
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

In mixing bowl of stand mixer, combine cookie crumbs, powdered sugar and chopped nuts. Mix in the oj and melted butter. Mix for 1-2 minutes (don't skip this step - it's crucial - otherwise the mix will be too dry and you'll never get it to form balls).
Shape into 1" balls and roll in the coconut. Refrigerate to firm.

The recipe doesn't say, but I made 60 one-inch balls out of this


Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
