Pecan Bourbon Balls Recipe
During the holidays, it’s all but impossible to resist a homemade bourbon ball. It’s a Southern delicacy that disappears mighty quick (maybe too quick) at any holiday party. Whether rolled in powdered sugar, dipped in chocolate, or coated in chopped pecans, these boozy bites never disappoint our crowd. These Pecan Bourbon Balls are coated in spiced toasted pecans for a sweet-and-salty finishing touch. Toasted pecans, unsweetened cocoa, and—our favorite ingredient—bourbon come together for a bite-sized confection and perfect holiday treat. It’s been said that these bourbon balls might go down a little too easy, thanks to the decadently layered flavors; but the holidays are all about celebrating, so we see no fault in that! During Christmas, we love whipping up a batch of these sweet, no-bake treats for a much-loved Christmas food gift idea for neighbors or hostesses. When gifting, nestle each one in a mini baking cup, and place them in cardboard jewelry boxes wrapped in holiday paper before delivering. We guarantee these treats are good enough to give your most talented baking acquaintance without a worry in the world. After trying these special boozy balls of sweetness, you’ll never think “a bourbon ball is a bourbon ball is a bourbon ball” again!
