Chocolate Bourbon Balls

Featured in our 2017 Christmas Guide
Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 18

These deep, dark confections are a bit like truffles (though much quicker to make), with sophisticated, toasty flavors from nuts, coffee, and bourbon.

Ingredients

  • 5-1/2 oz. (1-1/4 cups) crushed chocolate wafer cookies
  • 4 oz. (1 cup) confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 oz. (2/3 cup) toasted chopped pecans
  • 2 oz. (4 Tbs.) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 tsp. instant espresso powder
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup white sanding sugar or turbinado sugar
