I was inspired by Cathy at My Side of 50 for this recipe. She tells a darling story about her grandmother on this post. Go and check it out.
My grandmother story is slightly different. My great grandmother, Lula Belle Wilson, liked booze and often added it to recipes, most often her delicious eggnog. When my momma was a little girl, Lula often told her to stay out of the eggnog. My mom decided then that HER eggnog would never have booze in it so that everyone could enjoy it. And as far as I know, it never has had any, except what we might pour in our individual glasses!
For my recipe, I used my bourbon ball recipe and exchanged the bourbon for Fireball. It's a simple switch out. If you aren't into including alcohol, I can't help you with an exchange, because I haven't tried anything else!
- 1 (12-oz.) package vanilla wafers, finely crushed
- 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 cup Fireball whiskey
- 2 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- Powdered sugar
Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl until well blended.
2. Stir together Fireball and corn syrup until well blended. Stir together Fireball mixture and wafer mixture. Dough should be stiff and hold its shape. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar. Let set for 10 minutes and recover with powdered sugar. Cover and chill up to 2 weeks.
