I just made these today for a Christmas party this weekend. It was funny...when I was measuring the 1/4 shot of bourbon I thought, "what the heck, that doesn't seem like enough" and gave it a quick shot more. Do not try this at your home!! I used Jim Beam Black and they are strooooong! But whose complaining? I like them. But then again, I like the taste of Bourbon. These have turned out great and I will be making them often...using only the amount of bourbon called for, of course!


I've been making these for years as gifts and my family can't get enough. I used graham cracker crumbs and often add more bourbon than called for. The confectioners sugar soaks in so dust them again just before serving. a melon ball scoop works well for me, just scoop into batter, then tap hard into a plastic bowl, finish rounding off with buttered hands.


OH!! This has got to be the best recipe I have found for Bourbon Balls! It doesnt have a real strong Bourbon taste just enough. Thanks Pamela!!
