Bourbon Pecan Balls

A great treat for "grown folks" from Halloween to New Year. Makes great gifts, too...if you can resist them yourself!

3 cups ground vanilla wafers

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup ground pecans

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup Steen’s Pure Cane Syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup bourbon or whiskey

Confectioners sugar

In a medium bowl, combine first seven ingredients. Stir with a fork to moisten thoroughly. Chill for 30 minutes. Using a melon baller, scoop mixture into 1” balls. Moisten hands with water and roll each ball to firm. Coat each ball by tossing gently in a small bowl of confectioner’s sugar. Place in airtight container and chill until ready to serve. Yields 36 pieces. Make great gifts!
