Jim Beam Bourbon Balls

Recipe by KathyP53
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 4 dozen




  • Bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and stir in bourbon and vanilla.
  • Sprinkle chocolate over cream and allow to set without stirring for 5-6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pulse the pecans in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add pound cake cubes and pulse until pecans and cake are finely chopped.
  • Stir the chocolate and cream until smooth. Pour the chocolate over the pound cake mixture in the food processor and pulse until combined. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until firm enough to scoop, about 1 hour.
  • Sift cocoa and powdered sugar together in medium bowl. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of bourbon-chocolate mixture and roll to form a ball. Roll ball around in cocoa-powdered sugar mixture to coat and transfer to baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bourbon-chocolate mixture. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. These look great placed in mini paper muffin/candy cups.
