Bourbon Balls

By tdberg

This is my take on a classic holiday treat.

Bourbon Balls
1/2 cup small chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 cup small chopped cashews
5 tablespoons of high quality bourbon (my new favorite is Henebery. Its infused with cardamom)
1/2 cup of butter slightly softened
16 ounces confectioners sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
12 ounces semi sweet chocolate

Place the small chopped nuts into tupperware and pour the bourbon over them. Seal the tupperware and refrigerate the nuts for two to three days until the bourbon soaks in. This is key. Too much liquid means not enough flavor and the candy won’t set properly.

Mix the butter and sugar together. I use my KitchenAid at medium speed. Fold in the soaked nuts and refrigerate a few hours until the mixture is set.

Remove from refrigerator. Roll the mixture into bite size balls and coat with the baking cocoa. Place balls bake into the refrigerator until set- 1 to 2 hours.

Melt the semi sweet chocolate in a double boiler on low heat. When melted, dip the bourbon balls into the chocolate to coat. Place on greased cookie sheet to cool and set.

    It really ddnpees on exactly what he (and other Democrat leaders) try to get through. If it is something terribly left-wing, it won’t ever happen because the Republicans have enough seats for a senate filibuster and a number of Democrats are pretty moderate and represent a moderate constituency. If the plan is fairly party-neutral I would give it 1 to 2 years for the Senate and House to agree on something, which is at least six months after a full property market recovery is speculated to be well under way, so the unemployment bill may be rather unnecessary.In response to the technology and green energy, he doesn’t really have the power to force technology to come, mostly it’s a free market that drives those types of things, and when the market is in the slumps we need to wait a little while, unless we go totally socialist, but as we can see in Soviet Russia, extended socialism destroys the country after a few decades.
