    I made these last night, and they are so delicious! I subbed in Spiced Rum for the Bourbon and subbed Brazil nuts (because I didn't want to bother shelling hazelnuts). I have only ever had Kentucky Bourbon Balls (creamy center with chopped pecans dipped in a chocolate shell) so this was a nice departure for me. Thanks for this simple tasty recipe I can whip up anytime!

    These are very good. My grandmother used to make them this way at Christmas, and we could never get enough. She would cover hers with different types of chocolate, and coatings (butterscotch, white chocolate, etc.) and add different fillings in some,( coconut, different nuts, peanut butter) But the bourbon ones with the hazlenut was my favorite.

    I switched the bourbon for rum and the results were absolutely delicious. To make sure the ground vanilla wafers were finely ground and uniform, I ran them through my flour sifter. Also rolled my rum balls around in a touch of rum to help the sugar adhere a bit better. Imagine the surprise when some one picks up one of these soft white balls and bites into these fabulous flavor-packed treats.
