This one is for adults only. Why should kids get all the holiday sweets? 

I had my mom dig out an old recipe from when I was a kid. We were never allowed to eat these but I remember my older sister making them as gifts for adults.

You put a couple in a tin and they make a pretty unique gift -- super sweet and alcoholic!

1/2 cup butter
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/3 cup bourbon
12 oz. chocolate chips
Pecan halves

Mix butter, sugar and bourbon alternately. 

Drop by 1/2 teaspoon on to wax paper.

Press 1/2 pecan on either side of ball.


Melt chocolate chips in top of double broiler.

Dip bourbon balls into melted chocolate. Chill
