Bourbon Balls

This is one of those cases where it doesn't pay to use expensive alcohol. I used a Trader Joe's brand bourbon, to fine effect. Make sure to leave time for these to age; 2 to 3 weeks is optimal.

1 c powdered sugar
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/4 c bourbon
2 Tbsp honey
2 1/2 c vanilla wafers, crushed
1 c pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped

Sift together powdered sugar and cocoa. Stir in bourbon and honey. Add wafer crumbs and pecans. Roll into 1" balls; roll the balls in additional powdered sugar. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
