Bourbon Balls

I like preparing this recipe. It's fun to put together and the taste is out of this world:) But you can make changes to it and it still will come out great. For example, although the recipe is with Bourbon, you can substitute with Rum or Brandy.

Or you can substitute pecans with walnuts, macadamia nuts or any other nut that you like.

They are easy to make and you can definitely find one combination that you like best. Have fun...:)


1 (6 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate bits
1/2 c. sugar
3 tbsp. light corn syrup (Karo white)
1/3 c. bourbon
2 1/2 c. (about 5 dozen) finely crushed vanilla wafers
1 c. finely chopped pecan nuts
Powdered sugar to roll balls in

Melt chocolate over hot water. Remove from hot water and stir in sugar and syrup. Blend in bourbon. Combine wafers and nuts and add to chocolate mixture; mix well.

Form 1-inch balls and roll in confectioners sugar. Let ripen in covered container at least several days.

Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.

Will keep 3-4 weeks in tightly covered container!
