vanilla wafer bourbon ball

I found this in the back of the refrigerator in late February, 2011.  My recipe file states that these were made 12/19/2010.

The color, texture, and flavor had not suffered.  Apparently, bourbon preserves!

Vanilla Wafer Bourbon Balls
(adapted from Saveur here)
mix together:
28 vanilla wafers, crushed (you should have 1 c. crushed wafers)
1 c. pecans, chopped
3 T cocoa powder

in separate bowl, mix:
3 – 5 T bourbon (this was TOO much for me; I’ll only use about 2T next time)
1/4 c light corn syrup

Add wet to dry and mix well.  Portion about 1 T each and roll into balls.
Then, roll balls into a bowl of decorative sprinkles of your choice.

Store in refrigerator (original recipe says 1 week) but serve at room temperature.
