Texas Whiskey Balls--You Bet!

December 1--This is the Day!  To make those whiskey balls--you want them to sit and mellow in all that good whiskey--so with each bite you get a burst of flavor.  Don't open the tin until
Christmas Eve--well, maybe you can sneak one or two before then.  After all, someone needs to be
the tester.

In Texas we use good whiskey, especially this one from Garrison Brothers Distillery in Hye, Texas.
We met Dan Garrison right at the creation of his distillery back in November, 2009--
If you are near Hye (west of Johnson City, TX) sometime be sure to stop in to see the
distillery and have a sample of some mighty fine whiskey.

Anyway, back to making those whiskey balls--they have got to age and I mean if you can mix them up earlier than December 1--do it!

1 Box of Vanilla wafers
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 cup pecans
1/2 teaspoon cocoa
2 Tablespoons of syrup
1/4 Cup whiskey
grate pecans and wafers--mix all ingredients
roll into balls--you can roll the balls into powdered sugar or cocoa
Mellow out those suckers!
