Bourbon Balls


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

The How-Tos:

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).
