F.A.Q.


home > recipes > candy / snacks > holiday liquor balls
from NY, US 3 cups vanilla wafer crumbs ( or chocolate cookie crumbs, graham cracker or gingerbread cookie crumbs, etc.) 1 cup powdered sugar ( sift so no lumps ) 1/4 cup baking cocoa ( sift so no lumps ) 1/4 cup corn syrup ( light or dark ) or honey 1 cup finely chopped nuts 1/4 to 1/2 cup liquor ( rum, bourbon, Jack Daniels etc. ) optional: 1/4 cup finely chopped candied cherries, or mini chocolate chips, or grated orange zest Optional Coating: powdered sugar, chopped nuts, chopped flaked coconut This is a how to recipe and one can change the flavor as desired by the different flavored cookie crumbs and additions. I buy cookies in a box and then process in my food processor . Also note the different crumbs also may have different absorbing qualities and the amount of liquor can be up to 1/2 cup. I usually prefer the plain vanilla or chocolate cookie crumbs- but the other kind of cookie crumbs may be what you like for flavors. I usually buy a good quality boxed cookie and place in the food processor to make fine crumbs. Simply place and mix all the dry stuff in a large bowl. Add the corn syrup ( or honey ) , cherries or optional ingredients if using, and start with 1/4 liquor and mix well. Mixture should not be overly wet or overly sticky and so adjust liquor if needed for taste and texture. Mixture should form nicely into balls. Wet your hands for easier shaping if needed. Form into desired size balls with your hands ( I like about samll walnut size ) and place in a single layer on a platter etc and cover and chill well. At this point these may also be frozen. They need to mellow at least overnight or a few days to mingle all the flavors . Prior to serving roll them in powdered sugar, or nuts or coconut. I prefer the powder sugar. Then I place each in a small fluted paper muffin cup and then in a holiday cookie tin or box for gift giving. Flavor improves with age. Keep well covered. Yield at least 2 dozen large or up to 6 dozen smaller size.

This is a how to recipe and one can change the flavor as desired by the different flavored
cookie crumbs and additions. I buy cookies in a box and then process in my food processor . Also note the different crumbs also may have different absorbing qualities and the amount of liquor can be up to 1/2 cup. I usually prefer the plain vanilla or chocolate cookie crumbs- but the other kind of cookie crumbs may be what you like for flavors.

I usually buy a good quality boxed
cookie and place in the food processor to make fine crumbs.

Simply place and mix all the
dry stuff in a large bowl. Add the corn syrup ( or honey ) , cherries or optional ingredients if using, and start with 1/4 liquor and mix well.

Mixture should not be overly wet or overly sticky and so
adjust liquor if needed for taste and texture. Mixture should form nicely into balls. Wet your hands for easier shaping if needed.

Form into desired size balls with your hands ( I like about samll
walnut size ) and place in a single layer on a platter etc and cover and chill well. At this point these may also be frozen. They need to mellow at least overnight or a few days to mingle all the flavors . Prior to serving roll them in powdered
sugar, or nuts or coconut. I prefer the powder sugar. Then I place each in a small fluted paper muffin cup and then in a holiday cookie tin or box for gift giving. Flavor improves with age. Keep well covered.

Yield at least 2 dozen large or up to 6 dozen smaller size.
