2 cups fine vanilla wafer (reduced fat)
1 cup powdered (confectioner's) sugar
1 cup finely ground pecans or walnuts
3 tablespoons cocoa powder - Hershey's special dark
3 tablespoons light or dark corn syrup
1/4 cup bourbon or any whisky
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Cocoa and/or powdered sugar for coating
Combine the crumbs, sugar, nuts, cocoa, corn syrup, bourbon, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. Roll into balls about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter and roll in cocoa powder or powdered sugar to coat the outside. Store in an airtight container for at least one week, and up to three weeks.
You should be able to make 2.5 dozen balls. I seem to always make more. This batch I made 61, mine must be just a bit smaller than 1 inch.
Number of Servings: 61
