    -Natalie Canfield(sxnj32b)
1    Semisweet chocolate morsels
    -(6 oz)
1/2  c  Bourbon
3  tb  Light corn syrup
2 1/2  c  Vanilla wafer crumbs
1/2  c  Powdered sugar, sifted
1  c  Pecans, finely chopped
    Powdered sugar

Melt chocolate morsels in top of double boiler or in microwave. When smoothly melted, remove from heat and stir in bourbon and corn syrup. Set aside. Combine crumbs, powdered sugar and pecans. Mix well. Stir into chocolate mixture; let stand 30 minutes. Shape into 1" balls. Roll in sugar. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator. Yield: about 5 dozen. Got this from December '84 issue of Southern Living magazine. These are wonderful--now a holiday tradition at our house! You can substitute english walnuts for the pecans. You can also use rum instead of bourbon. I have tried several combinations, but find the original the best to my taste. Formatted by Rosalind Beck, ggkf98a, Prodigy From the MM database of Judi M.
