Mom’s Bourbon Balls

Mom made these every Christmas but for grownups only since  a large amount of bourbon included. And, with no cooking and the modern convenience of a Cuisinart, so easy to make.  Now that I am grownup, I can make and eat them.


2 1/2 cups ground vanilla wafers
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
3 teaspoons Karo (or substitute)
1/2 cup Bourbon or rum
1 cup ground nuts (pecans or walnuts


Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. Roll into balls about 1″ in diameter. Dust with confectioner’s sugar.
