Here is how to make delicious and seasonal Bourbon Balls It is a perfect candy to have on hand as the holiday season approaches. This candy freezes well, so you can make it early on, and have it ready for guests at a moments notice! I also like them when I have a taste for just a little something sweet. I actually like them better frozen!
Soak nuts in Bourbon overnight. Combine all ingredients (except coating materials) and refrigerate until firm. Roll in small balls and dip in Bakers semi-sweet chocolate melted with paraffin. I used a 12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, mixed with 1 oz. paraffin in a double boiler. I then coated the Bourbon balls with the chocolate mixture, and placed them on waxed paper to set up. I placed a single half-pecan piece on the top of each piece of candy, and pressed it lightly while the coating was still hot. I let the finished Bourbon balls cool. You can use a refrigerator or freezer to speed up the process. Then I placed them in a candy dish for serving. These Bourbon balls are wonderful for serving during the holiday season; also, they make great gifts! Enjoy!!!
