      Hey, Nanachickens whatever you do DON'T put Vodka on styrafoam plates or whatever. It melts the stuff. Now back to the Bourbon balls. I have a similar recipe and last Christmas I lost about 10 or 12 of the bourbon balls and we still haven't found them :O) Firehousecook

      Thanks Rita. Another great recipe from you. Everytime I'm searching for some special recipe I am usually drawn to one of yours. Very easy, great tasting and a lot of fun. I ended up putting the bourbon on a disposable foam plate and the powered sugar on another. When I was done, drank the bourbon off the plate, hiccup, lol. Thanks again, Leslie
