- 1 cup finely chopped pecans
- 1 cup finely crumbled chocolate wafer cookies
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp light Karo Syrup
- 1/4 cup whiskey
- Powdered sugar for rolling
Note: Time shown includes the time for rolling the balls.
Toast your pecans by arranging them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven (alternatively, 2-3 minutes in the microwave works, as well).
Finely crush the chocolate wafers and pecans (easiest in the food processor).
In a large bowl, combine the wafers, pecans, sugar, corn syrup and whiskey. Mix until a thick dough is formed.
Rolling the dough between your hands, form one-inch balls. Roll the balls in powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container.
