These are the best! I used a different whiskey and they are now in the freezer, well minus 2 or 3 that is =)
This year instead of 3 tbs "Jack Daniels" I put in 6 tbs and just had to leave the mixture sit in the fridge for 1 1/2 hrs to firm instead of 45 min. The mixture should be at the stage where it will sit in a nice mound. I also made them smaller and got 3 dozen. Hope someones tries these they are good!
I used graham cracker crumbs since that was what I had on hand. I added 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp molasses hoping that would give me some of the ginger snap flavor. Next time I'll add more spice. Jack Daniels worked just fine. To minimize sticking to the plastic storage container, I dusted the bottom with the cocoa/sugar mix. When I finished making the truffles, I tossed the remaining mixture over all of them and shook it all up. No problems. A winner in this house. I wonder what creme de menthe would taste like?
very tasty but very messy! it's tricky to get em to peel off the foil... be careful or your guests will be chewing on aluminum. also, imo, the cocoa/sugar mix could be cut by half and you'd still have plenty to coat the truffles.
