Boozy Balls Are a Season’s Classy Answer to a Jell-O Shot

The holidays give us grant blanche to devour both ethanol and sugarine with forward abandon—bonus points if we can streamline a process. Gelatinous shots might be a millennial-prefered car for a dual substances but, like Pete Shweddy before me, we cite a gratifying ball.

Maybe I’m alone in this, though Jell-O shots feel some-more “Independence Day” than “Christmas.” Christmas calls for cookie-type confections, and stealthy, work-appropriate inebriation, and Jell-O shots are distant too conspicuous. Booze balls are also insanely easy to make, and need no baking, chilling, or environment time, definition we can make them for that potluck we forgot we concluded to attend. Rum and scotch balls are classic, though feel giveaway to bend out into other forms of ethanol (I used gin), following this simple template:

  • 2 1/2-3 cups crumbled wafer-type cookies
  • 1 crater belligerent nuts
  • 1 crater powdered sugarine + some-more for coating
  • 1/4 crater + 2 tablespoons booze
  • 3 tablespoons sugarine or other romantic sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder if suitable (if your ethanol is anything though gin)

Starting with 2 1/2 cups of cookie crumbs, differentiate a dry mixture together in a large bowl. Dissolve your syrup in a booze, afterwards supplement it to a dry mixture and stir all together until it forms a cohesive, moldable mound. If your mix is too gummy to work with, supplement some-more cookie crumbs.

Grab small one-inch clumps of a stuff, hurl a clumps into balls, and toss them in powdered sugarine (or cocoa powder) to coat. Store in an indisputable container; they get some-more dainty with any flitting day.

No matter that drink we choose, a pivotal is compare it to your wafer and nuts. Plain vanilla wafers work good with any spirit, though play around and get creative. The next combinations all sound flattering good to me:

  • Bourbon + pecans + chocolate wafers, coated in divert chocolate
  • Gin + macadamia nuts + lemon wafers (pictured above, they are amazing)
  • Rum + pecans and toasted coconut + vanilla wafers
  • Rye + almonds + ginger wafers

Be warned, however: These small spheres will ambience strongly of whatever suggestion we make them with, so keep them divided from a small ones or those who do not imbibe. Stealth ethanol is fine, though surprise ethanol is no fun.
