Known as “Southern Truffles,” I couldn’t wait to make a batch of fun, boozy bourbon balls. Most of all, I wanted to impress my fiancé, quite the bourbon aficiando, with a dessert made of his favorite Kentucky bourbon, Knob Creek. These no-bake balls are easy to make and pack quite the punch. Inside the balls is a mix of crushed Nilla wafers and pecans for just enough crunch. I rolled them in chocolate sprinkles to make them beautiful enough to serve at any of your holiday parties this year. Enjoy!

Chill mixture in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This will make the balls easier to roll.

    I’m not sure you could have included any more of my favorite items in one treat… Other than maybe some smoked salmon from Russ’s, but that would be nasty.
