Happy Halloween from Aggles

from left: Aggles, me

I had asked Aggles what I was supposed to do with all the leftover bourbon when she flew back East. Today this was in my mailbox:

Happy Halloween! Here is the best Bourbon Ball recipe ever:

Chocolate Bourbon Balls
fr. Betty Crocker’s Ultimate Cookie Book, p. 102

2 Cups finely crushed chocolate wafer crumbs (i.e. chocolate graham crackers)
2 Cups finely chopped almonds (“finely” being the operative word here)
2 Cups powdered sugar

Mix that all up together, then add:

½ Cup Bourbon
¼ Cup light cornsyrup

Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll in powered sugar. (The balls – not yourself.) Cover tightly & refrigerate at least 5 days to blend flavors.
