One of the more popular holiday candies. You can easily substitute the whiskey with another liquor, if you prefer.


  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • 1 box vanilla wafers
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey


Step 1

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).

Step 2

Finely crush the vanilla wafers and pecans (easiest in the food processor).

Step 3

Combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl. Blend well with your hands. I find putting on a pair of gloves makes forming the balls much easier (and less messy!).

Step 4

Rolling the dough between your hands, form one-inch balls. Roll the balls in powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container.
