These pecan and crushed vanilla wafer balls are mixed with a little bourbon. For additional flavor layers, roll them in coconut and confectioners’ sugar.

Grind cookies in a food processor into fine crumbs; transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Grind pecans in the food processor; add to cookie crumbs.

Stir 1 cup confectioners’ sugar bourbon whiskey cocoa powder and corn syrup with the cookies and pecans until the mixture holds together; roll into 3/4-inch balls.

Spread coconut onto a plate and 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar onto a separate plate.

Roll balls in coconut and sugar to coat.

Arrange balls onto a platter cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until hardened at least 1 hour.
