Bourbon Chocolate Balls

I am a new convert to the brown liquor, specifically the sweet bourbon.  In honor of Memorial Day and the opening weekend of the pool - here is something that would be able to be consumed on the pool grounds.  There's alcohol in them, but no one would know, amirite? (via BuzzFeed)

Chocolate Bourbon Balls
Makes 30 balls

  • 12 graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 5 tablespoons bourbon whiskey
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup melting chocolate
  • ¾ cup walnuts, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a small bowl or glass jar, add the mixed nuts and bourbon. Cover with lid or plastic wrap and let sit overnight.
  2. Combine the butter, sugar, and vanilla until sugar is dissolved. Add in the crushed graham crackers, vanilla, chocolate chips, walnuts, and remaining bourbon.
  3. Freeze for 10-15 minutes or until firm enough to roll.
  4. Form mixture into small balls, and refrigerate.
  5. Coat the balls in melted chocolate and top with walnuts.
  6. Chill for 1 hour.
  7. Enjoy!
