  • 1 (6 ounce) cup semisweet chocolate morsels, melted
  • 3/4 cup vanilla wafer crumbs

  3. Stir in wafer crumbs and preserves; cover and chill 1 hour.
  4. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; roll in nuts or powdered sugar.
  5. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator, or freeze up to 2 months.
