1 1/2cupsfinely ground vanilla waferssuch as Nilla Wafers
1 1/2cups/ 155g ground walnuts
3tablespoons/ 45 ml bourbon whiskeyI used Wild Turkey Kentucky Bourbon
Pour 1/2 cup of the ground walnuts in a small bowl and set aside for later use.
Mix chocolate chips and honey in a 1 1/2 quart microwaveable bowl. Heat in the microwave at full power 1-2 minutes, until the mixture can be stirred smooth with no lumps remaining.
Stir in ground vanilla wafers, walnuts and whiskey. Stir; mixture should be quite thick. Scoop out mixture by the level tablespoons and roll into balls. Roll in reserved 1/2 cup of ground walnuts. Store tightly in a covered container. Flavor will fully develop over four days. Stored properly, these will keep up to 4 weeks.
If you don't have a microwave, you can melt the chocolate and honey over medium-low heat in a saucepan. This may take a little longer (you'll have to abandon the 5 minute moniker) but it'll be worth the time and effort!
