YUMMY Christmas cookies!!!!!
Sugar Plums
* "Rubies and Emeralds"

1 6-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tabsps white corn syrup
1/2 cup orange juice
2 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs, crushed fine
1 cup chopped nuts

Melt chocolate chips over hot water. Stir in sugar and syrup. Blend in orange juice. Add to vanilla wafer crumbs in large bowl and mix well. Chill until firm. Form into small balls and roll in powdered sugar. *For Rubies and Emeralds, substitute red and green colored sugar crystals. Store in refrigerator in air-tight container.

Note: This takes most of a 12 ounce box of vanilla wafers. I've found the best way to reduce to crumbs is to place in a large zip-lock bag and hammer into submission :-) . Rolling the mix into balls is messy. Keep a basin of cool water and some paper towels at hand for frequent rinsing.

Enjoy!!!!!!
