“This recipe can also use rum instead of bourbon and also you can use chocolate wafers instead of vanilla wafers. Be sure to age these for at least a few days in a tin before serving.” - by MYRAMANI

- In the microwave oven or over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the bourbon and corn syrup.
- In a medium bowl, toss together the crushed vanilla wafers and ground walnuts. Pour the chocolate mixture over the crumbs in the bowl and blend well using your hands. Shape into 1 inch balls and press a cherry half into the center of each one. Roll each cookie in confectioners' sugar to coat.
- Store in an airtight tin for at least a week before serving.

"Made this for Christmas, and it was great! Everybody loved them...." See more"
"Great Recipe! I took the advice of chopping the cherries into smaller pieces and just mixing them in. The only advice I have is that when you add the bourbon and corn syrup leave your heat on low. ..." See moreI had taken the chocolate mixture off the double boiler and when I added the bourbon and corn syrup it hardened the chocolate a little. I just put it back on the double boiler for a few minutes until it was smooth again and then mixed in the rest of the ingredients. Thanks for the recipe Cindy!"
I'm nuts too...
"HOLY COW these are TAAAAAA-SSTY! I made these and then had to bring them to my mom's a few hour later and they were STILL awesome! I used mariccino cherries that were pretty small so I didn't bother..." See more to cut them in half, and I also used Captian Morgan and a tad bit more of it. YUMMY, it was worth every fattening bite! Thanks Cindy, for the great dessert. Oh, the fam. thanks you too!"
