Betty’s Kitchen Chocolate Bourbon Balls — Thanksgiving Recipe Video

New Cookbook: “The Bettyskitchen Collection, Second Edition” available on
amazon and create space.
In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Chocolate Bourbon Balls. These delightful dark chocolate-dipped candies contain Maker’s Mark Whisky and more chocolate! This recipe is from Maker’s Mark, except for the addition of chocolate on the inside.


1/2 pound box confectioner’s sugar (also known as powdered sugar or icing sugar)
½ cup cocoa powder
1/2 stick melted butter (¼ cup)
¼ cup Maker’s Mark Bourbon whisky
½ cup chopped pecans
(Also needed: 6 ounces semisweet chocolate morsels for coating, with paraffin or vegetable oil optional)

Combine all ingredients (except coating materials) and refrigerate until firm. Roll into small balls and dip in semi-sweet chocolate melted with paraffin or vegetable oil. I used 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips, which I melted in the microwave, along with a small amount of vegetable oil. I then coated the Chocolate Bourbon Balls with the chocolate mixture, and placed them on a silicone pad to set up. I placed a single half-pecan on the top of each piece of candy, pressing it lightly while the coating was still hot. I let the finished Bourbon balls cool. You may use a refrigerator or freezer to speed up the process. I then placed the finished Chocolate Bourbon Balls on a serving dish. These Chocolate Bourbon balls are wonderful for serving during the holiday season; also, they make great gifts! Enjoy!!! –Betty 🙂
