booze food

my neighbor brought me some booze food balls made w/ Jameson's Irish Whiskey over the weekend and they went down way too fast ..... so I went looking for recipes, tried to keep to the K.I.S.S. method some are a little less involved

warning ! they are addictive




Bourbon Balls -- 1

1 cup pecans
8 ounces vanilla wafers, enough to make 2 cups
1/2 cup unsweetened Hersheys Special Dark cocoa, divided
1 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup bourbon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Spread the pecans on a cookie sheet, and place in the oven for 3 minutes. For even toasting, turn the tray, front to back. Toss the nuts with a metal spatula and bake for another 3 minutes. You'll know they're done when they give off their fragrant aroma, and be sure to check them so they don't become overbaked or charred.

In a food processor, chop the vanilla wafers into crumbs. Add the pecans and process just until they are finely chopped.

In a medium bowl, mix together the crumb-pecan mixture, 1/4 cup of the cocoa, and 1/4 cup of the confectioners' sugar. Add the corn syrup and bourbon.

Mix thoroughly.

Sift the remaining 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar onto a large plate.

Form the crumb mixture into 3/4-inch balls and roll them through the cocoa-sugar to coat.

Store in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

I thought beer was booze food. That's one way how the Egyptians fed the slaves so they would sleep deep and, not revolt after the slaving was done at the end of the day.
