I found this recipe in an old box that I used to write and keep recipes in 28 years ago. It's still a good one worth trying!


1 6oz pkg Nestle Semi-Sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup bourbon
3 TBS light corn syrup
21/2 cups vanilla wafers (crushed)
1/2 cup powder sugar (sifted)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup or so sugar (for rolling balls in)


Melt choc chips, stir in bourbon and corn syrup, mix well and set aside. Mix cookie crumbs, powdered sugar and pecans, mix well.
Stir in chocolate mixture, let stand 20-30 minutes. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar.
Store in airtight container in refridgerator.
Approx: 5 dozen

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
