These make a lovely addition to a candy tray at Christmas, and are great to give as gifts during the holidays.

Prep:

45 Min

Ingredients

3 1/2 c
vanilla wafers
2 Tbsp
cocoa powder
1/2 c
powdered sugar
1/4 c
light karo syrup
1/3 c
whiskey
1 c
very finely chopped walnuts
6 oz
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp
shortening

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Roll out vanilla wafers in a zip loc or heavy plastic bag, until wafers are fine and smooth.
2
Combine wafer crumbs with the cocoa powder, powdered sugar, karo syrup, whiskey and walnuts.
3
Roll into 1" balls.
4
In a double boiler, melt together the chocolate chips and the shortening.
5
Roll the bon bons in the melted chocolate, and allow to cool on a sheet of waxed paper.
6
I'm told these can be frozen ... but they never lasted long enough for that, as I put them on goody trays for the holidays and never tried freezing them.
7
I do not drink whiskey, so I "borrowed" a cup from a neighbor to make these, but you can also use a rum extract and reconstitute it to make 1/3 cup substitution for the whiskey.
