You Will Need:
1 cup raw pecans
1½ cups (12 oz) vanilla wafers
3 Tbsp brown or turbinado sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup tea-infused bourbon (click here for our Oolong-Infused Bourbon Recipe)
1 vanilla bean
½ cup granulated sugar
Toast pecans on a baking sheet at 400°F for 8 minutes.
In a food processor, thoroughly blend toasted pecans, vanilla wafers, brown or turbinado sugar, cocoa powder, maple syrup and Oolong-Infused Bourbon. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Make the vanilla sugar: split vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape into a bowl. Add the sugar and mix well.
Using a tablespoon or melon baller, scoop bourbon ball mixture. Roll into a ball and toss in the vanilla sugar to coat. Chill and serve.
