Default Cherry Bourbon Balls

Cherry Bourbon Balls

This recipe can also use rum instead of bourbon and also you can use chocolate wafers instead of vanilla wafers. Be sure to age these for at least a few days in a tin before serving.

Ingredients
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup bourbon (or rum)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
3 cups crushed vanilla wafers
1 1/2 cups ground walnuts
24 candied or marichino cherries, halved
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

In the microwave oven or over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the bourbon and corn syrup.

In a medium bowl, toss together the crushed vanilla wafers and ground walnuts. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crumbs in the bowl and blend well using your hands. Shape into 1 inch balls and press a cherry half into the center of each one. Roll each cookie in confectioners' sugar to coat.

Best when stored in an airtight tin for a few days to a week before serving.
