Chocolate Pecan Whiskey Balls

Because it's fun to say.
(I don't see these very often. Am I going to the wrong parties?)

  • 1 C combination (to your preference)semi-sweet chocolate chips and bittersweet/unsweetened chocolate pieces
  • 1 C powdered sugar, divided
  • 3 T light corn syrup
  • 1/2 + C bourbon whiskey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 2 1/2 C finely crushed Nilla wafers
  • 1 C pecans, toasted and finely chopped
  • 1 T cocoa powder

Mix crumbs and nuts in a large bowl and set aside. In a double boiler (or just carefully) melt the chocolate until smooth and shiny. Whisk in 1/2 C powdered sugar, corn syrup and salt. Remove from heat and add bourbon and vanilla. Pour the chocolate mixture over the cookie/nut mixture and stir to combine. Let sit for about 10 minutes so everything can absorb. Mix the remaining 1/2 C powdered sugar and cocoa powder in a small bowl. Form ~1 inch balls of the chocolate/cookie mixture and roll them in the sugar to coat. Chill in an airtight container in the fridge at least overnight and up to a week.
