Food for church...

Our church hosted a prayer meeting last week. Most of the ladies in our church made some sort of appetizers to share with everyone after the prayer meeting. My goodness, the ladies in my church can cook!!! While many of them made beautiful AND great tasting food, I took very simple things. I took Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sausage Cheese Balls and Frozen Orange Balls. My sister and I actually called these Orange Basketballs when we were younger. Whatever you call them, however, just remember to call me when you make them!! These are GOOD!! Just make sure they are eaten pretty soon after you get them out of the freezer- they get kind of mushy when they start thawing. They still taste incredibly awesome, but they get a little messy.

Frozen Orange Balls

1 (12 ounce) box vanilla wafers
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 box powdered sugar
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
1 cup nuts (optional)

Crush vanilla wafers and mix with sugar, butter, orange juice concentrate and nuts (if used). When thoroughly mixed, roll into balls and then roll in coconut. Freeze. Serve frozen.
