My mother always made these at Christmas when I was a kid. She also made them for baby and wedding showers. Everyone always loved them!  I liked helping her make them because it was able to snitch a bite or two!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Bursting with sweet citrusy orange flavor, these no-bake orange blossom balls are a unique, easy-to-make little treat. Chopped pecans add a crunchy texture. We love the sweet shredded coconut crust. It adds another layer of flavor. With only five ingredients, these are a budget-friendly treat to add to a dessert platter for any holiday or event (Christmas, Easter, wedding or baby shower, etc). Just try not to eat the whole batch yourself!
