Orange-Butterscotch Balls

Ingredients

1 c butterscotch chips
3 T light corn syrup
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/3 c frozen orange juice concentrate
2 2/3 c crushed vanilla wafers (1 12oz box)
3/4 c chopped cashews
1/8 c superfine sugar

Method

1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.
2. Melt butterscotch chips in a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula.
3. When butterscotch is completely melted, add corn syrup, sugar, and orange juice, and continue stirring over low heat until well blended.
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the wafers, cashews, and the orange-butterscotch mixture. (The wafers are easily crushed with a hammer or a rolling pin in a plastic bag.) Use a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients together thoroughly.
5. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls, roll the balls in superfine sugar, and place on the already prepared cookie sheet. Allow to dry for two to three hours. Store in an airtight container.

NOTE

Yield: About 50 balls
Note: They freeze wonderfully and last frozen for up to six months.
