I don’t have many cookie recipes, but I just have to share this special version of a classic with you. Whiskey balls! A little different in taste than rum balls, but the whiskey also goes perfectly together with chocolate. Rolled in pecans or cocoa powder- there is a favorite for everyone.
- 200 g dark chokolate, chopped
- 100 ml cream
- 150 g ground almonds
- 1 tsp grated orange zest
- 1 shot of whiskey
- 150 g butter room temperature
- 100 g roasted pecans
- 2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
Heat cream and remove from heat, then stir in chocolate pieces and let melt completely.
Add almonds, orange zest and whiskey and mix well. Then place in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Then mix in the butter.
Roast the pecans in a pan and chop them into small pieces in a chopper.
Form equal-sized balls from the mixture and roll about half in pecans, the other half in cocoa powder.
Place the finished whisky balls in praline molds and set aside to chill. Store in the refrigerator.
