This recipe is from my mother in law, Lorene Vaverek.
I also doubled this recipe for the boxes too.
1 1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
1 1/2 cups ground pecans
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
3 Tbs cocoa
1/4 cup bourbon
1 Tbs vanilla
2 Tbs corn syrup, I use light but dark would work too
1 cup sifted confectioner's sugar for coating
Combine all the ingredients. Refrigerate for an hour or so.
Scoop into balls and roll in powder sugar.
Can be stored in an air tight container for a week or two. They mellow after a few days. They can also be frozen before you roll them in the powder sugar.
