Boozy, sweet, and rich, these whiskey balls are the perfect sweet bite with a kick. The peanuts and peanut butter bring out the peanut butter in the whiskey and offer a savory complement to the sweet sugar and cookies. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

These are great! Accidentally used reduced fat wafers but they turned out perfectly using this recipe as written. Can’t wait to give some as gifts. Read More

Wowzer!!! What’s great booze ball. I loved these very easy to assemble but took forever to roll. I put the dough in the fridge before rolling and then put them I. The fridge again after rolling. Only thing differently I did was drizzle white chocolate over the tops. That was the key. Wry tasty and cannot wait to make these again. They’re strong and the recipe makes a lot. Great as a gift for the holidays. To me they’re also sweet so half of one for me goes a long way. Thank you for posting Read More

The flavor is good but the shaping has been difficult. The material winds up rather crumbly and I'm not sure how to fix it Read More

These were awesome! I had bought a bottle of Skrewball whiskey several months ago and this was the perfect use for it. I wasn't sure how they would come out so I halved the recipe but now I'm wishing I made the full amount! Read More

These are delicious! I used 1/2 vanilla wafers and 1/2 chocolate teddy grahams to make them chocolaty. To those who said they were crumbly, try adding a bit more peanut butter (I used 3 heaping spoonfuls) and blend everything right in your food processor. Blending the ingredients in the processor helps everything to stick together better. I also rolled these in small bite-sized balls and got about 40 from this recipe. Read More

It is awesome. Tastes like Reese's Peanut Butter cups with a kick. I had to halve the peanuts because I did not want to risk my husband having any difficulty with the nuts. He has to be careful, so I ground them up really, really fine, and used half the amount. I doubled the peanut butter to compensate. I even had some really old whiskey around, and I used that in order to NOT have to go to the store for special peanut butter flavored whiskey. I figured with the extra peanut butter, I did not need it. But they turned out absolutely fabulous!!!! Truly, these are to die for. Read More
