    Manami's Note:

    These have always been a hoilday favorite; any kind of holiday! I used to make these with Rum but have now switched to using Bourbon. I have had this recipe for eons and I don't know from whence it came. These can also be frozen &/or refrigerated.Have updated 12/12/2008: changed the amount of Bourbon balls to a count of 20 to 30.

      As I was mixing these up I kept getting a huge wif of bourbon. I was thinking okay I can drink a LITTLE bourbon but this is going to be way to strong for me. But then I tried one. That first taste was wow! Then it got smoother and better and smoother and better. After that I could have rolled one, eaten one, rolled one, eaten one...Very good! These are for Thanksgiving but I don't know if they are going to last that long.
