  • 1 C Pecans
  • 3/4 C Bourbon Whisky, divided
  • 2 C Vanilla Wafer Crumbs
  • 1/4 C Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1/4 C powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C light corn syrup
  • Chocolate Jimmies


  1. In a small bowl, pour ½ cup of whisky over the pecans. Cover and soak the pecans overnight.
  2. Spread out the pecans on a cookie sheet and bake at 352 F until lightly toasted. Let them cool and then chop finely.
  3. Process the vanilla wafers in a food processor until they are crumbled. Add in the cocoa, powdered sugar, syrup, ¼ cup whisky, and pecans and process until combined. Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to measure out the balls.
  4. Roll the whisky balls smooth and roll into chocolate jimmies. If the balls are a little "wet" feeling, just refrigerate to dry.
