Bourbon Balls (1 of 1)

I made these Bourbon Balls last year as gifts for my family and friends and they were a hit. So I made them again this year! They are easy to make, keep for weeks in your fridge and are nice and bourbon-ey! So make sure that you like bourbon and do not eat them all in one sitting! ‘Tis the Season

Note: You may want to half the recipe so that you don’t have so many balls!

Yield 22 Dozen
Ingredients
12 cups crushed vanilla wafers (980010, 2/2#, Nilla)
3/4 cup dark corn syrup (992600, 6/32oz, Karo)
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (993053, 50#, Gerkens)
4 1/4 cups powdered sugar, divided (NSU2450, 50#)
4 3/4 cups chopped pecans, divided (992506, 2/5#)
3 cups bourbon, such as Old Grand Dad’s or Wild Turkey

Method
Mix vanilla wafers, corn syrup, cocoa powder, 4 cups powdered sugar, 4 cups pecans and bourbon. Refrigerate at least 12 hours.

Keep refrigerated and enjoy
