Tennessee Honey Bourbon Balls

Tennessee Honey Bourbon Balls

This recipe is a variation of one that my mom made back in the 1970s. She used Bacardi Silver, which I find to be a little harsh, so I prefer to use Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Bourbon. You can use whatever you like–a nice spiced rum would be great too!

These yummy (and potent) bourbon balls are traditionally made for the holidays, but are wonderful any time of year!



11 ounce bag of vanilla wafers, crushed

1 cup chopped pecans

3/4 cup confectioners sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/2 cup Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Bourbon (or whatever you like)

21/2 tablespoons light corn syrup


Using a rolling pin or a food processor, crush the vanilla wafers.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and form into balls using your hands or a small cookie/candy scoop.

Roll in additional confectioners sugar, and set on a rack to dry out a bit.

Store in an airtight container.
