1 6-ounce package (1 cup) Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons of corn syrup (such as light Karo)
1/2 cup bourbon
2 1/2 cups vanilla wafter crumbs(make from box of vanilla wafers)
1/2 cup sifted confectioners
1 cup finely chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans) I usually chop in food processor.
granulated sugar (to roll balls in after)
*Over hot (almost boiling) water, melt chocolate chips; remove from heat
(a double boiler) Boil the water, then add chips & turn down heat slightly. This will still melt the chips, but won't burn them.)
*Blend in corn syrup & bourbon.
*In large bowl, combine vanilla wafer crumbs (Use a food processor, or try a rolling pin or large glass to crush the cookies.)
Mix well. If too liquidous, add more vanilla wafers. If too dry, add more Bourbon.
Let stand 30 mins.
*Form into 1-inch balls. (Use a melon ball scoop in granulated sugar.
Balls may be stored in covered container for several days to let flavors mingle!
Makes 4 1/2 dozen 1-inch balls.
