Bourbon Balls

Makes about 2 dozen balls (depending on the size)

Elinor made these Bourbon Balls around Christmas time. But there's no reason not to enjoy them year round. The recipe requires no cooking and a batch of these little bonbons can be made in minutes. Elinor's recipe probably dates back to the early 1950's and it's still a classic!


3 cups vanilla-wafers
1 cup pecans
2 TBS light corn syrup
1/2 cup bourbon (or rum)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup confectioner's sugar
