I remember as a child sneaking these at family Christmas gatherings because they were suppose to be for the adults only cause of the liquor. But these are so wonderful as a holiday treat and quite easy to make.
Put wafers in food processor grind till very fine. Do the same with pecans. Combine these with the sifted powdered sugar and the cocoa.
Add the syrup and whiskey. Mix thoroughly. Shape into balls, about the shape of small meatballs, and roll in the granulated sugar. Store in a tightly covered container. Does not need to be refrigerated.
