      Title: Whiskey balls
 Categories: Candies, Christmas
      Yield: 36 Servings
 
      3 c  Vanilla wafer crumbs
    1/2 c  Finely chopped pecans
    1/2 c  Unsweetened cocoa
      2 c  Confectioner's sugar
    1/2 c  Bourbon
      3 tb Light corn syrup
           Salt, if desired
 
  1.  Blend together the crumbs, nuts, cocoa, 1 cup confectioner's
  sugar, bourbon, corn syrup, and a dash of salt.  Form into small
  balls the size of walnuts.
  
  2.  Roll each ball in the remaining 1 cup confectioner's sugar and
  place on a cookie sheet.  Chill in the refrigerator for several hours
  or overnight.
  
  Note:  It is traditional in the South to use bourbon, but rye may
  also be used. This confection -- or at least a version of it -- was
  an early Southern version of those chocolate truffles that became the
  rage for chocolate lovers during the 1980s in this country. The
  whiskey balls are made, of course, with cocoa rather than chocolate.
