1 pound candy orange slices, cut fine
2 cans flaked coconut (3 1/2 oz cans)
1 tsp orange flavoring
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 box powdered sugar, sifted.
Combine all ingredients, except powdered sugar, in large bowl and mix well. Spread mixture on a lightly greased 15 x 20 x 1/2 inch jelly roll pan and bake at 275 for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and while still warm, spoon mixture into bowl of powdered sugar. Roll into balls the size of small walnuts and place on cookie rack to cool.
use dates instead of orange candy,
swap walnuts for the pecans
and use 2 tsp vanilla, omitting the orange flavoring.
