This was a very easy recipe. All of my guests loved it. The bourbon added a nice zing and they are even better the next day. These are less like a cookie and more like truffles. I made 64 balls from the recipe, but they are small, remember this is more like candy than a cookie. You simply have to divide your 8x8 pan into 8 squares across by 8 squares down.

I found this recipe yesterday and made these last night to bring to a cookie swap party today. Not only were they a hit, but they won the contest for "most delicious" out of 20+ other cookies! These things are divine, especially after letting them chill in the fridge overnight. This recipe WILL yield 60 IF you make them small enough, but you can make them any size you want. I doubled the recipe and got over 120 bite-sized cookies (almost more like candy). Only changes I made was adding some coconut into the white chocolate mixture (so it was inside and outside the cookie) and I used rum instead of bourbon (a little generously, too). PERFECT combination of flavors.

I made these twice. The first time I made them I followed the recipe exactly and the flavor was bland and just not what I hoped for. I made them again and adjusted it a bit. I ended up using 3T. of jim beam and got a bit more flavor and I also toasted about 7oz. of almond and 1/2 C. of coconut that I melted into the chocolate. Even though I toasted the ingredients that I mixed into the chips, it?s still best to finish with untoasted coconut, otherwise your Christmas snowballs will look like something someone found out in the hay barn while cleaning stalls. These are fantastic; I just really enjoy the rich flavor of the toasted nuts and coconut.

These are extremely rich. My children are not fans of coconut so we rolled them in powdered sugar for the same effect.
