Number of Servings: 60


    1 6 oz package (or 1 cup) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
    1 cup Granulated Sugar - divided
    3 T. Karo Light Corn Syrup
    1/3 c. Bourbon
    2 1/2 c. (apx 33) finely crushed Vanilla Wafers
    1 c. finely chopped Walnuts


I use a small melon baller to have a uniform ball size. I also use a food processor to crush wafers and walnuts, measuring AFTER crushed.


Combine crushed wafers and walnuts in a large bowl; set aside.

Melt chocolate in a pan over hot NOT BOILING water. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup sugar and corn syrup & stir until smooth. Blend in bourbon and stir until well combined. Combine with wafer/nut mixture until well incorporated.

Pour remaining sugar into a shallow bowl.

Working quickly form mixture into 1" balls and roll in sugar. Let ripen in a covered container at least several days.
