"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1 box vanilla wafers 2 tsp. cocoa 2 c. chopped nuts 6 T. white corn syrup 6 T. bourbon, whiskey or rum Powdered Sugar
Place vanilla wafers in food processor and process until fine crumbs. Mix in remaining ingredients. Roll into 1/2 - 1 inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar to coat. Store in tightly closed container. These are better if they sit for a few days to combine flavors. A Searby Christmas tradition.
