These were very good and very strong. Made them for a Christmas party I attended last night and had to keep warning people not to eat too many if they were driving home. I found that the balls came out the perfect size using a rounded teaspoon for each. I also found that rolling the balls in powdered sugar briefly THEN rolling into nice balls made for a less messy process and better looking product. I then rolled them in the sugar again (and also rolled some in hot cocoa mix). These are definitely strong and I would be tempted to put in a bit less bourbon. I also think that a little candied orange peel might be a nice addition and a good complement to cut the burn of the bourbon just a bit. Definitely a make again.

These seemed better to us 24 hours after making them. At first they were too strong and also too soft. We'll make these again! Thanks for the recipe!
