No-Bake Booze Balls

No Booze Balls Multihulls Magazine

“Booze Balls” were traditional holiday treats in my family, and I love them (we’d make “No-Booze Balls” with orange juice for the kids).

When we began living aboard, I decided they were great as they didn’t need to be baked . . . then I discovered an easier way to make them by pressing the mixture into a pan and cutting instead of rolling each one separately.

Perfect for days when you want a treat, but don’t feel like devoting the whole day to baking!

Crush vanilla wafers finely by placing them in a re-sealable bag and rolling with a rolling pin or wine bottle (or using a food processor a blender if you have one).
