Bourbon Balls


  • 1 1/4 cups finely chopped pecans, divided
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 pound dark chocolate candy coating, melted

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Combine 1 cup pecans and bourbon; let stand, covered, for 8 hours or overnight.

Step 2: Cream butter and confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until crumby; stir in pecan mixture.  Refrigerate, covered, until firm enough to shape, about 45 minutes.  Shape into 1-inch balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.  Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Step 3: Dip in chocolate coating; allow excess to drip off.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup pecans.  Let stand until set.
