So here they are, better late than never! And they are really good! Just a warning: they are not baked, so the liquor doesn't get baked out. They are little drunken balls, so not really appropriate for littles. Which really made Rowan mad since she tried to lick the whisk and steal a ball or two. If you'd like to try these drunken balls yourself, you'll need the following.
1 cup confectioners' (powdered) sugar
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cup bourbon
2 T light corn syrup
2 1/2 cup crushed vanilla wafers
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
colored sugars or sprinkles
makes about 50 balls
Whisk together the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder until mixed.
