In this episode Stacey and Jessica make Bourbon Balls and Bourbon Ball Cocktails.
Recipe from the Kentucky Derby Museum Cookbook
- 1 stick butter
- 1 box powdered sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 4 tablespoons bourbon (any kind will do, as long as it’s from Kentucky!)
- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
One day ahead: Cream the butter and sugar. Add the chopped pecans, mixing well. Add the bourbon and quickly shape into balls using 1 teaspoon of the mixture for each ball. Refrigerate overnight.
Next day: Melt both the chocolates in a double boiler until the chocolate has a smooth consistency. Dip the chilled bourbon balls into the chocolate. Place the candy on waxed paper in the refrigerator to harden.
Makes 4 dozen.
