2 1/2 cups finely crushed vanilla wafers (about 10 ounces)
1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp. finely ground hazelnuts
1/4 cup bourbon
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp. corn syrup
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1. Mix crumbs, confectioners' sugar, hazelnuts, bourbon, cocoa, and corn syrup in medium-sized bowl.
(I put the vanilla wafers and hazelnuts in my food processor to crush/grind them.)
2. Press all ingredients in bowl together to form a large ball.
3. Shape into balls, 1 tablespoon each; place on waxed paper.
4. Place granulated sugar in a small, shallow dish. Roll small balls in sugar to coat. Place in a tightly cover container for at least 24 hours for flavors to develop.
Make-ahead tip: Store in tightly covered container in a cool place up to several weeks.
I bet Mom-mom likes this recipe because she can make it ahead of time and get it crossed off her holiday list early!
Ok, I think that officially wraps up posts regarding the holidays...
