WOW!!!I made these with just apricots as DH loves anything apricot. I used 1/2 cup Cointreau instead of orange juice and think I got tipsy eating them.LOL.I would recomend using OJ with about a tablespoon or two of Liqueur. These were a little overpowering but very tasty and warm in the mouth and throat if you know what I mean. I didn't get 30 balls, I guess I made mine too big. Thanks Donna for the nice treat.
