In fact, there’s quite literally nothing that can beat the feeling of walking into a fast food restaurant at 3am, drunk off your ass, just knowing that you’re about to put down $17 worth of delicious fried food. yeah, you’ll be paying for it tomorrow, but in the moment, it’s the best.
In the spirit of that, let bring them both together with these deep fried Jack and Coke balls.
First you have to make the whiskey balls. Here’s what to do:
1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar
1/3 cup Jack Daniel’s whiskey
1/4 cup butter, softened
50 pecan halves (about 1 1/4 cups)
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
1 tablespoon shortening
Stir together first 3 ingredients until blended. Cover and chill 8 hours.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Gently press pecan halves into 2 sides of each ball. Chill 8 hours.
Melt chocolate and shortening in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Dip bourbon balls in chocolate, and place on wax paper.
Chill 1 hour or until hardened.
Once you have the whiskey balls ready to go, Southern Living will show you the rest.
