Bourbon balls! Easy-to-make, truffle-like, tongue-tantalizing orbs of holiday joy. I make these every year for family and far-flung friends – it’s a great solution to the “what-do-I-give-so-and-so” problem some of us face each year.
It takes balls to do the holidays in style. Bourbon balls, that is. Also, happy to say my novels are all now in the Rockland Public Library – thanks, Amy Levine!
It starts like this: “There was always lots of snow then, and you’d go out with your brother wearing your scratchy wool jacket and hole-y mittens and corduroy pants worn smooth, along with those leaking galoshes, and you’d build snow forts and an arsenal of snowballs…” but the ending belongs to you.
Sumptuous, delectable chocolate-pecan bourbon balls, an easy recipe that requires a few moments of physical violence, but for all the folks who will go “ooh… aah…”, it’s well worth it.
