Chocolate-Bourbon Balls

Crushed wafer cookies and chopped walnuts flavor these simple
spirited treats.

Prep: 20 min

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups finely crushed vanilla wafer cookies (about 27 cookies)
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1 tablespoon bourbon
Candy decorations or sugar


1. Mix chocolate chips and honey in 1 1/2-quart microwavable
casserole or bowl. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes or
until chips can be stirred smooth.

2. Stir in crushed cookies, walnuts and bourbon. Shape into
1-inch balls. Roll balls in candy decorations.

3. Store in tightly covered container at least 4 days to
develop flavor but no longer than 4 weeks.

Makes 2 dozen candies

Success Tip: If they need a little "touch up" after storage,
you can re-roll the bourbon balls in powdered sugar just before
serving.
