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

How to Make It

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.

Chef's Notes

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

I make these Bourbon Balls every year for the Holidays and they are always a big hit. You can always use Rum or Whiskey insted of Bourbon all depends what you like.

I've been making these cookies for probably over 20 years as it was in an 1970s S/L cookbook and it's wow'd everyone I've given them to. Used to make for cookie exchanges at work and they all wanted the recipe....I've never found a better bourbon ball recipe. I have used my food processor to mix everything..so easy!
