I've been making these since reaching legal drinking age...about 1976. They are sooo good! Remember the longer they sit...the stronger they get. Not for the kiddies.
1 pkg. (3 cups) vanilla wafers, crushed
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tbl unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup bourbon ( or rum)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1. Place vanilla wafers in between layers fo wax paper....finely crush with rolling pin or mallet...leaving no big crumbs
2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients, except granulated sugar.
3. Shape into 1 inch balls, then roll in granulated sugar.
4. Store in tightly covered container, layered using wax paper. Store for at least 3 days before serving for flavors to mellow (ferment)....remember the longer, the stronger. Before serving, reroll in more granulated sugar.
