I’ve got big balls

Big, gooey, liquored up cookie balls! And they’re stupid easy to make too!

  • 1 box Nilla Wafers
  • 1 cup almonds (these were lightly salted roasted ones)
  • 1 cup white 🍫 chips
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Amaretto
  • Powdered sugar (for coating)

In batches, pulverize the first three ingredients and combine in a mixing bowl. Mix in they honey, then the Amaretto until everything blends together. Let it sit for about 20 min for the flavors to meld.

Using a scoop (mine was a coffee scoop, about 2 tbsp), mound your individual balls, rolling them in the powdered sugar.

And of course, as part of my attempt to bribe 🎅, it needs a cocktail! A simple Godfather goes perfectly with these.

  • 1.5 oz Scotch
  • 1.5 oz Amaretto
  • 1 Maraschino 🍒

Stir the ingredients together over ice, strain into a glass with the cherry on the bottom.

So very festive, I know the big guy won’t be able to resist, and I hope you can’t either! Happy holidays my lovelies, more goodies coming this week!
