If you are short on time and need something quick for the holiday season, these bourbon balls come together really quickly. There's no baking involved, although they are best when left to sit in the fridge for a day or two before serving. I substituted the traditional vanilla wafers with chocolate ones, so these bourbon balls are nearly black in color. Without the powdered sugar they do look like little lumps of coal, so they make a perfect gift for someone naughty (or nice)! Also be warned, since these bourbon balls are not cooked the alcohol content is pretty potent. This treat is not appropriate for children or lightweights (like me).
