"Just made these with my youngest. They turned out well, though we used pecans instead of walnuts. Very fudgy! I a not a huge chocolate fan but all my boys seem to enjoy them. So a winner here."

"These are very good; should the conf. sugar been sifted? I had a bowl of chocolate powder. The only way a ball could be formed was with warmth of my hands and unable to roll them round and round to make a smooth ball."

"These were ok, but if I make these again I would cut down on the amount of nuts. I found them to be hard to roll."

"I was not sure if it called for vanilla wafers (Nilla Wafers) or vanilla wafers that are like sandwich cookies (pink, cream, and chocolate)."

"I agree with others who think these taste more like candy than cookies. I made these with milk chocolate chips and replaced the orange juice with citrus flavored rum. They are quite tastey, but I still feel that I need to play around with the recipe a bit more. Not my favorite....yet!"

"I changed the recipe a little by substituting vanilla wafers with Graham Cracker Crumbs, used Filberts (Hazelnuts) and replaced the Orange Juice with Triple Sec (Orange Liquer) and added plus 2 Tbsp. Orange Rind. Wow - this is more like sinking your teeth into candy. Everyone gives it 5 stars in this family!!"
