Chocolate Coffee Snowballs

Yield Makes about 4 dozen
These takeoffs on bourbon balls are better the day after they're made


  • 1/3 cup coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 (9-ounce) package chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed
  • 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped almonds, toasted
  • Powdered sugar

How to Make It

  1. Combine liqueur, corn syrup, and instant coffee granules; let mixture stand 5 minutes.

  2. Stir until granules dissolve.

  3. Combine cookie crumbs, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and chopped almonds; stir well. Pour coffee mixture over crumb mixture, stirring well.

  4. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar twice to coat well. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.

  5. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Kahlúa for coffee-flavored liqueur.
