Recipe from Coastal Living

These rich bourbon balls are a festive holiday dessert. The bourbon flavor gets mellower with time, so make these at least one week ahead.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups crushed vanilla wafers
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • Powdered sugar

Preparation

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in corn syrup and bourbon. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

Beware--these little morsels pack a punch. The bourbon flavor gets mellower with time, so make these at least one week ahead.
