yields ~12-14 balls
The Bits and Bobs:
1 1/4 cups vanilla wafers, crushed (I counted out about 32-33 cookies)
1/2 cup pistachio meal/flour (can sub any other nut meal, or ground nut)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp + 1 tsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp bourbon
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp + 1 tsp honey
powdered sugar, turbinado sugar, or crushed wafers for rolling
In a small bowl, stir together the bourbon, water, and honey.
In a bigger mixing bowl, whisk together the wafers, pistachio meal, cocoa powder and powdered sugar.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients make sure everything is well combined and sticky.
Roll about a tbsp of the dough into balls with your hands, then roll in extra powdered sugar, more crushed wafers, or turbinado sugar until coated.
Allow to set up in the fridge for at least 10-15 minutes before serving (to help them keep their round shape and to firm up slightly).
