Have your dessert tables bow under the weight of pralines, caramel turtles, bourbon balls, and holiday fudge.
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
- Throw all ingredients (except sifted confectioners sugar for the dusting) in a food processor and run until it forms a dough.
- 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!
