My Mom Made these Years ago so I had her recipe and I made these for a Christmas Party at the Last Minute. I used 3/4 cup Bourbon and could only refrigerate for 3 hours beforehand. They were a Monster HIT! First Item on the Buffet to be emptied. I will be fixing more for Friends & Family!

I absolutely got raves. You can use different wafer cookies and change taste w different liquors. I've used frangelica liquor and spiced rum. Both a hit!
