Delicious No-Bake Orange Juice Cookies

My mom & I had these tasty little treats at a recent baby shower that we went to. I had no idea what the little orange colored balls would taste like since I had never even heard of this no-bake cookie, but once I ate one, I knew I had to have the recipe! They are so simple to make, and give a real burst of flavor!

Once you try this easy recipe, I think you will add it to your list of favorites!

1 box of vanilla wafers – usually 12oz
1 6oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 box of powdered sugar – 16oz
1/2 cup butter
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 1/2 cups of coconut

Crush the vanilla wafers until fine. Mix vanilla wafers, orange juice, powdered sugar, butter, and chopped pecans. Shape the mixture into walnut-size balls, and roll in coconut. Store balls in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Makes approx. 5 dozen cookies.

So easy – yet so delicious!

  1. I have looked and looked for this recipe. My Grandma made these for us in the ’70’s and I loved them. Thank you for posting it!!!

  2. My mom makes these – she got the recipe from someone at work a long time ago. We add a little of the powdered sugar to the coconut to make them easier to roll (they get *really* sticky, but it’s worth it!)

    I like them best after they’ve sat out for about a day – the outside starts to dry out and “crisp up” a little.

    Glad there are other fans of these out there. We always called them “Orange Coconut Balls”

  3. These were my absolute favorite cookies my Grammy used to make when I was little back in the late 70’s early 80’s. I have been trying to find this recipe forever… So glad I did. I will be making them for Christmas this year.
