Hi everyone! I found this super cool recipe on how to make bourbon balls at http://www.brit.co/ Great party appraiser idea or movie night snack! When I first came across it, my initial reaction was, “whaaaaat? Okay, we so have to try this!!!” What? I like balls. ๐Ÿ˜› What do you think of this recipe? Check out the full article by Alexis Monson

Ingredients:

  • 14 cinnamon graham crackers
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup natural or bittersweet cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup bourbon

Toppings (Optional):

  • crushed Fruity Pebbles
  • crushed graham crackers
  • sprinkles

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Toast the walnuts for 7 minutes. Let cool.

  2. In a food processor, grind the graham crackers to a dust.

  3. When the walnuts are cool, grind them in the food processor, but not so much that they turn into a paste.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine graham cracker dust, ground walnuts, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder. Grate ginger on top, and stir to combine.

  5. Stir in honey and bourbon. You might have to use your hands to get the honey and bourbon to fully incorporate.

  6. Using your hands, roll the dough into one-inch, bite-size balls.

  7. Once youโ€™ve rolled all the dough, grind both the graham crackers and the Fruity Pebbles in the food processor, separately. If you want bigger flecks of Fruity Pebbles to dot your balls, which we highly recommend, take it easy on them in the food processor. Place toppings in three separate bowls.

  8. One by one, roll the bourbon balls in your topping of choice to cover. Then eat!

Oh happy day!!!

xoxo
