Bourbon Balls

Check here everyday for 30 days for a new Holiday Cookie Recipe! Many can be baked NOW, zip-bagged & freeze. One less thing to get done during the hectic Holiday season! Now get on your Apron & start baking.

In a small bowl let 1/2 cup chopped raisins macerate in 1/4 cup bourbon for 15 minutes.
In a large bowl combine well 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs, 1/2 cup each of firmly packed dark brown sugar and finely chopped pecans, the raisin mixture, 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses, 1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon and ground ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.
Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and roll the balls in finely chopped pecans. Store the bourbon balls in an airtight container in a cool dark place for at least 1 week before serving. Makes about 36 balls.
