Whiskey Balls 2.0

Whiskey Balls - such a tasty treat.  I was really pleased with them the first time I made them.  I actually made them a couple times after the first time because people kept asking for more of them.  So it got me thinking - I love Nilla Wafers, but how much better would they be if I used a cream filled sandwich in them?  Enter my friend who is graciously being my guinea pig since she's had the original version (and loved them).  Her dream of being a taste tester has finally come true - and I'm more than happy to supply her with the goodies that I make. 

food porn!!

We arranged a delivery through her husband, which will now be our new way to get treats to each other.  I patiently waited for her husband to drive home and for her to try them.  Finally I got the text - she loved them.  Her only problem was that I didn't give her enough to eat.  They were gone too quickly - which is a problem I love hearing about.  :) 
Whiskey Balls 2.0

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 cups Vanilla Cream Sandwich Cookies, crushed into crumbs
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1/3 cup whiskey
1/4 cup light corn syrup

In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips 30 seconds at a time until chips are mostly melted. Stir until smooth. In a large bowl combine wafer crumbs, confectioners sugar, salt and cocoa powder. Add melted chocolate, whiskey and corn syrup. Mix until well blended - dough should be firm. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Shape into small balls and roll in confectioner's sugar. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or in an airtight container.
