No exaggeration, these are the best Bourbon Balls you'll ever make. They have the perfect texture, and are balanced between the richness of the chocolate and the slight punch of the bourbon. Plus, they are SO simple and easy to make.
THE BEST BOURBON BALLS
Makes approx. 2 dozen
1 cup crushed vanilla wafers (Whole Foods carries a great Organic Vanilla Wafer)
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Mix together all ingredients except granulated sugar. Roll mixture into 1" balls.
Roll balls in the granulated sugar.
Place in covered container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Note: The flavors will deepen over time, so if you have time to make them a day or two in advance, they will get even punchier!
