Bourbon Balls

These adult bonbons are a holiday staple for many.  The combination of chocolate and bourbon is to die for.  And using a very good bourbon makes all the difference, just like using a good chocolate.  A favorite in my house is Knob Creek.  Make a double batch of these and bring them to a holiday party, and you will be the most popular guest in the house!  Be sure to make these a few days ahead to let the confections mellow and flavors marry together.

Bourbon Balls

3 cups vanilla wafer crumbs

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup finely chopped pecans

1 ½ tbsp. cocoa

3 oz. bourbon

3 tbsp. white Karo syrup

Mix crumbs, sugar, pecans, and cocoa together. Stir bourbon and syrup together and combine with dry ingredients. Shape mixture into about three dozen small balls and roll in powdered sugar. Age in the refrigerator for a few days.
