Serves: 24-26

These Easy Bourbon Balls are a wonderful no-bake treat for the holiday season! Similar to rum balls but made with rich, amber-colored bourbon instead.

1 (11 oz) box Nilla Wafers, finely crushed
1 cup finely chopped pecans
¾ cup powdered sugar, plus ⅔ cup
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup high quality bourbon
3 Tbsp corn syrup

In a large bowl, combine the finely crushed Nilla Wafer cookies with the finely chopped pecans, ¾ cup of powdered sugar and the cocoa powder. Stir the corn syrup into the bourbon until blended; add to the Nilla Wafer mixture.
Using a spatula, stir the mixture together until moistened and combined. Using a cookie scoop, scoop Tablespoon-sized balls of the mixture and roll them in your palms gently to smooth out. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining balls.
Using the remaining ⅔ cup powdered sugar, coat each bourbon ball in powdered sugar. Chill for about 20-30 minutes or until set before serving. Can be stored in the fridge, covered, or at room temperature, covered.

*hint: these look really great individually sitting paper cupcake holders
