I remember as a child sneaking these at family Christmas gatherings because they were supposed to be for the adults only cause of the liquor. But these are so wonderful as a holiday treat and quite easy to make.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These whiskey balls are similar to a rum ball, just prepared with whiskey. If you don't love whiskey, this recipe may not be for you. But if you like whiskey, definitely give them a try. Ground pecans add a nice texture and flavor. The whiskey is noticeable but not overpowering. With a hint of chocolate, these will be delicious as an after dinner treat for adults.
