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!
