Bourbon balls

22 Nov

Sometimes, the holidays are stressful – too many people traveling, in crappy conditions, to eat a highly emotionally packed meal together. Plus, there’s always the awkward family member, or the topic of conversation you’re all trying to avoid, or maybe just the fact that you’re all trying way too hard to make everything perfect.

All I’m saying is, sometimes the holidays make you want a drink. Or chocolate. Or both. This is your recipe.

Bourbon Truffles

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 cups mini chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons bourbon (I used buffalo trace)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1) In a medium saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk and mini chocolate chips, and heat over medium heat until fully melted.
2) Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla and bourbon.
3) Chill in fridge for 2-4 hrs (I left them overnight, but that’s not necessary).
4) Roll mixture into 1 inch balls, and roll in cocoa powder. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours to set.
