    Bourbon balls (didn\'t know Bourbon had .......:)

    Well, made this years Bourbon Balls today. They are so easy.

    5 cups crushed nilla wafers
    4 T spoons cocoa
    2 cups powdered sugar
    2 cups chopped pecans
    1 cup Bookers (yum!)

    Sift the sugar with the cocoa, add the Bourbon, stir in the pecans and the nilla wafers. Form into balls. Roll in powdered sugar and put in a sealable plastic (I used Gladware). In a few days they are gonna be awsome!

    Does sound easy. And won't be confused with beer nuts.

    Enjoy.

    Tastey too. I do these every year. They get stronger as they sit in the container.

    I was told by someone who knows about such things that the secret to great bourbon balls is to soak your nuts in bourbon, at room temperature, for several days.

    That's what I do, usually for a week. No additional bourbon is needed. My recipe is a bit different though, it contains only bourbon, nuts, powdered sugar and chocolate.

    Yes but Bobby's Stagg version of this dish was sensational.

    I got my recipe from Bobby several years ago Last week I made a batch using the new WLW. They were good, but lacked the spicy kick that Stagg imparts.

    Don't know that I want to put a cup of Stagg, or Bookers, into this. If it's spicy kick that's needed, anyone try OGD BIB or 114?

    For this recipe I don't use a cup. I put the nuts in a bowl and add just enough bourbon to cover. I would say for a typical recipe I use around 1/2 cup or so.

    I'll have to try that. This was the recipe my mother always used to make so it is the one I "inherited".
