Bourbon Balls

Bourbon Balls function as the ultimate easy dessert for Southern cocktail parties, and they put a sweet, slightly boozy finish on any get-together. Think of them as …



  • 1 fine vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 1 finely chopped pecans
  • 1 confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 Tbsps unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 C bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • confectioners sugar sifted


  1. Thoroughly combine 1 crushed vanilla wafer crumbs, chopped pecans, 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, and the cocoa.
  2. In a separate bowl, blend the bourbon and corn syrup.
  3. Stir this bourbon mixture into the dry mixture; blend well. Cover and chill for at least a few hours.
  4. Sift about 1/2 to 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar on a cookie sheet.
  5. Shape small bits of the dough into balls and roll them in the confectioners’.
  6. Store in refrigerator in tightly covered containers.
  7. Make these a few days in advance for best flavor, and roll in confectioners’ sugar again before serving, if desired.
  8. These can also be frozen for longer storage.
  9. Makes about 3 dozen bourbon balls.
