Bourbon Balls

Advertisement

Ingredients

1 cup cookie crumbs (we use shortbread or nilla wafers)

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup confectioners sugar, plus more, sifted for dusting

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ cup good bourbon

2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Directions

  1.  Throw all ingredients (except sifted confectioners sugar for the dusting) in a food processor and run until it forms a dough.
  2. If very soft, place in the refrigerator for an hour to firm up, but otherwise form marble-sized balls just like playdough and then roll in sifted sugar. Serve room temperature or chilled!
