Whiskey Balls
Categories: Candies, Christmas
Yield: 36 servings

3 c Vanilla wafer crumbs
1/2 c Finely chopped pecans
1/2 c Unsweetened cocoa
2 c Confectioner's sugar
1/2 c Bourbon
3 tb Light corn syrup
Salt, if desired

1. Blend together the crumbs, nuts, cocoa, 1 cup confectioner's
sugar, bourbon, corn syrup, and a dash of salt. Form into small
balls the size of walnuts.

2. Roll each ball in the remaining 1 cup confectioner's sugar and
place on a cookie sheet. Chill in the refrigerator for several hours
or overnight.

Note: It is traditional in the South to use bourbon, but rye may
also be used. This confection -- or at least a version of it -- was
an early Southern version of those chocolate truffles that became the
rage for chocolate lovers during the 1980s in this country. The
whiskey balls are made, of course, with cocoa rather than chocolate.
