Margarita Balls

These are a favorite of everyone. It is like a mini margarita in cookie form. I dare you to eat one and not love them!!

Margarita Balls

1 package vanilla wafers (12 oz) finely chopped - I use a food processor
1 1/2 cups of pretzels to make 3/4 finely chopped pretzels - use the food processor
combine these and set aside.
1 package (16 oz) confectioner's sugar
3/4 cup frozen margarita or limeade concentrate (thawed)
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp tequila (optional - although it is a minimal amount compared to the other ingredients)
1 tsp orange-flavored liqueur (optional)
combine and mix with the vanilla wafers and pretzels until well combined
refrigerate for 2 - 3 hours.
1/2 - 1 cup granulated sugar
zest the rind of 3 limes
combine the granulated sugar and zest of limes. Now divide the sugar mixture into 2 bowls.
In one bowl add a few drops of red food coloring and combine well.
In the other bowl add a few drops of green food coloring and combine well. You can actually use any colors or leave the food coloring out.
Scoop the margarita mixture and coat in the granulated sugar mixture. I make half red and half green.
after they are all scooped refrigerate the balls.
