Chilling out and re-starting my engines in the kitchen. I am still up at 12:30 Monday night, so why not make chocolate bourbon balls, right? Crush a few vanilla wafers with a rolling pin, melt a little chocolate over simmering water and toss around a good amount of Great bourbon! My Mom even said these bourbon balls tasted better then hers. I made these for Christmas treats. Who says bourbon balls should be left just for the holidays???Very easy recipe too!
