Chocolate Cocoa Bourbon Balls

I was invited to a kind of dessert swap for adults.
I wanted to bring something that would be easy to prepare and impressive to others. Oh, and it had to be fun and festive.
Voila!

What do I like best about Chocolate Bourbon Balls?


They are so decadent. Especially if you are looking for some chocolate.
Chocolate Bourbon Balls are small enough for those who just want to taste them and they are big enough, for someone like me, to get to get a jolt of chocolate.

Can you get a buzz from Chocolate Bourbon Balls?
A chocolate buzz if you eat enough- in my opinion :)

I'm using chocolate sprinkles- aka Wilton 710-168 Chocolate Jimmies Food Decorative

Have you tried agave nectar?

The secret ingredient is the addition of vanilla wafers!

And of course, Unsweetened Cocoa

Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Crushed Vanilla Wafers
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 1/4 cup- yes, you can use rum instead. Jack Daniels or any Bourban
  • As needed Chocolate Sprinkles
Instructions
The easiest way to crush your wafers without using a food processor is probably to put them into a zip top bag and use a hammer, mallet, or similar item to crush them.Prepare two baking sheets with a lining such as a mat, wax paper, or parchment paper. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine together all of your ingredients except for your chocolate sprinkles. At some point you will need to use your hands to do this. Take one of your lined baking sheets and sprinkle your chocolate in it.Roll your mix into 3/4-1" balls. You can use melon or similar scoop to help. One at a time, roll each ball along the sprinkle, covering them well, and then place on the empty sheet.Cover and store for about a week.
