12 cups crushed vanilla wafers—the original Vanilla Wafers (4 boxes)
¾ cup dark corn syrup
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4¼ cups powdered sugar, divided
4¾ cups chopped pecans, divided
3 cups bourbon—Old Grand Dad’s
- Mix vanilla wafers, corn syrup, cocoa powder, 4 cups powdered sugar, 4 cups pecans and bourbon. Refrigerate at least 12 hours.
- Shape into balls. Pulverize remaining ¾ cup pecans and sift in remaining ¼ cup powdered sugar. Mix together and roll bourbon balls in mixture.
- You may want to halve the recipe as it makes a lot, 6 dozen.
They are “blue-ribbon” bourbon balls for sure! Thanks for the recipe California Girl!
