BOUR­BON BALLS

Southern Living (USA) - - Southern Living -

This boozy con­fec­tion head­lines many a list of clas­sic Christ­mas candies, but not ev­ery­one knows that it comes

in three dis­tinct styles. Choco­late, pe­cans, and a splash of bour­bon fig­ure in each, but vari­a­tions com­mence from there.

Vanilla-wafer-driven orbs fla­vored with co­coa

pow­der and rolled in sugar claim first place with many fans. Sec­ond in line are the cake­like pow­dered sugar-and­but­ter-based balls that

are dipped in melted choco­late. Least known (but at the top of our list)

are those made with melted choco­late rather

than co­coa. Seek­ing a com­bi­na­tion of the three, we used gin­ger­snaps for the cookie com­po­nent, added ground and crys­tal­lized gin­ger, and

then dunked them in choco­late for an el­e­gant

end­note.
