“This is a great recipe,” raves Phyllish. “I am from Kentucky and have been making Bourbon Balls for 40+ years. This is one of the best recipes that I have found.”

“Made these for some bourbon-loving clients last year and they were a huge hit so I’m doing it again,” says Suzan Satterfield. “I added some fresh-squeezed lemon to mine so there was a little tart with the sweet.”

“These are great,” according to Phlox. “I love to bake for the holidays, but find a lot of recipes to be much too sweet. The bourbon in these balances out the sweetness very nicely (I added a little extra).”
