Grand Marnier Balls or Name This Dessert For Me!

Based on a recipe I have for 3 ingredient energy bars, I gave a traditional rum ball recipe some thought. How could I incorporate my favorite cookie to replace the vanilla wafers? How could I add a fruit of some kind? And, better yet, replace rum for a better flavor?powdered balls

Well, this is my creation and I am sharing with you today. This batch makes 2-3 dozen to take to a party or serve at your own event. Some friends want to call these Grand M Balls, Super 8 Balls, Reindeer Balls. Call them what you like, you won’t be disappointed!


1 package of Oreo Thins

2 cups pecans

2 cups dried cranberries

2 mini bottles Grand Marnier

Agave nectar


Divide ingredients in half and pulse in food processor until finely ground. Add the Grand Marnier and agave until mixture reaches consistency that you can form balls. Resist the urge to make large balls, make them small because these will be so delicious that not any person can eat just one. Really.

Arrange on baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Roll in powdered sugar and enjoy! Graciously accept compliments and have another.

Bon Appétit!
