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
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!
