Brownie Bourbon Balls

In this quick-and-easy rendition, we used packaged brownie mix, a little bourbon, and chopped toasted walnuts for a spunky after-dinner treat.

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2005

  • Yield: 2 dozen (serving size: 1 ball)

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 (16.7-ounce) package double fudge brownie mix (such as Duncan Hines)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnut pieces, toasted

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 4 ingredients (including fudge packet from mix), stirring well. Spread into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near edge of pan comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

Crumble brownies; place in a food processor. Add bourbon; process until mixture forms a ball (about 30 seconds).

Shape brownie mixture into 24 balls, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each. Place nuts in a shallow bowl. Roll balls in nuts, pressing gently to coat.

Note: Store balls in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
