Welcome to Day #6 of Spirited Chocolate Week.
The holidays are linked in my mind with traditional family recipes, ones that have been handed down for generations. Today's Wallick Family Bourbon Balls originated from such a recipe.
Thank you Trudi Wallick-Horrocks for not only keeping your family recipe for Bourbon Balls alive, but also creating a gluten-free version. (Many recipes call for crushed vanilla wafers; these Bourbon Balls were made using gluten-free wafers.)
As soon as I un-screwed the Ball jar that held these balls, my nose was greeted with a strong authentic bourbon aroma. These cocoa confections, given an extra sparkle after being rolled in sugar, were flavorful, soft, and slightly lighter in weight and texture than one might expect. And they were perfect for the holidays.
