This is my take on chocolate rum balls which uses bourbon in place of the rum. It isn't Christmas without them!

Elaine L. Smith

Serves: 24 

  • 1 cup (170g) dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (100g) white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) bourbon
  • 2 1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup (40g) icing sugar

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Ready in:12min 

  1. Place chocolate chips into a microwave-safe medium bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, stir and then continue to heat at 20 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Stir in sugar and golden syrup. Blend in bourbon. Add crushed vanilla wafers and chopped nuts. Mix until evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate until firm.
  2. Roll the chilled chocolate mixture into bite-size balls. Roll balls in a mixture of ground nuts and icing sugar, or just plain icing sugar. Store in a covered container for a week before serving to blend the flavours.
