I found a simple way to add the perfect amount of lime. I changed the re pie by adding a box of lemon frosted cookies and the grated rind of one fresh lime to the mix. I adjusted the tequila until the mix was wet enough. The final touch was to mix one box lime jello with 1/3 cup powdered sugar and 1/3 cup whit sugar to roll the balls in. The lime jello gives just the right kick! I was asked for the recipe several times! Read More

Awfully "liquory" but generally an interesting treat for an all-adult party. Read More

I used the back end of a large ladle to pulverize the wafers in the wax bag they came in - kept things from getting too messy. After considering other reviewers' comments I elected to add a shot of Cointreau to the mixture (for additional moisture and more orange flavor). I found them to be delicious and the smell was wonderful. I also found that the mixture was easier to work with when making the balls on the smallish side and to dip my fingertips in water about every dozen or so (the extra moisture helps when forming them!) I'm bringing them to a Cinco de Mayo cocktail party tonight and will give a couple dozen of these as a hostess gift. Thanks for a unique and tasty treat. Read More

I make these every Christmas to give as little gifts. I think the most important thing is to make them at least 4-5 days before you plan on serving them. Store in fridge. The longer they sit the better they are. I also always add a little extra tequila to the mix! Read More

I thought this recipe was good not amazing but good. I didn't have any problems with them being crumbly or dry. I used my blender to crush up the cookies very fine and my pampered chef chopper to chop up my sliverd almonds. (I think getting these ingredients very fine is key) I added a shot of Grand Mariner (didn't have Contreau as suggested)and I used 6oz of white choc. (the whole box- hey why not the more chocolate the better right I dipped them in colored decorators sugar (green pink & white) they were pretty & sparkley. Everyone loved them. I wraped them up in celophane and tied them w/ a pretty bow and put them in a fun martini glass (didnt ahve a margarita glass) and gave as gifts. they got rave reviews!! Read More

Several people told me that these were wonderful. I followed the original recipe but added a squeeze of lime and a shot of cointreau- delicious! Also as someone else suggested I let these sit in the fridge for 5 days and they DID get better with time! yum yum. Read More
