Bourbon Balls

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Francisco in response to my quest for recipes using Balsamic Vinegar. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here).

Shirley says: "Remember these? They were a favorite back in the 60's. I used to make them at Christmas every year. Forgot all about them until I came across the recipe again".


2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2 Tblsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
1 1/2 Tblsp. light corn syrup
1/4 cup bourbon
Additional powdered sugar, sifted, for dusting

  • Mix the dry ingredients together until well blended.
  • Stir in liquids, blending with your hands, until the mixture is of moldable consistency and not too wet.
  • Form the mixture into balls about 3/4 inch in diameter. Roll the balls in powdered sugar.

These may be eaten right away, but are much better if stored in a tightly covered tin and aged at least 2 days.

Makes about 40
