Step 1: Base ... I prefer to use my food processor to grind up the wafers and the nuts; however, you can use a large ziploc bag and a rolling pin; but it takes a bit of work. Mix everything together in a large bowl. And, depending on the altitude and the humidity ... you may need to add a bit more bourbon or rum; or even corn syrup to get the balls to stick together well. YOU DO NOT want a wet batter, it should be very dry.
Step 2: With bourbon I prefer to add pecans; but with rum (I just use a white rum), I prefer walnuts. But don't be afraid to mix it up.
Step 3: Balls ... I use a small melon baller to get the same size each time, but that is not necessary. Add the mix to the palm of your hand - roll, squeeze, and roll again to make a nice size ball. It takes a minute so, take the time to do it right.
Step 4: Coating ... Roll each ball in either a small bowl of powdered sugar or cocoa. Transfer to a sealed contained (like tupperware), and let them rest 1-2 weeks for the best flavor. Then ENJOY!
