Carmella's Bourbon or Rum Balls

3 cups finely crushed Nabisco chocolate wafers (about 60 cookies)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup finely chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts
½ cup bourbon
¼ cup light corn syrup
Granulated sugar, powdered sugar or baking cocoa

Mix crushed wafers, powdered sugar and nuts in a large bowl. Stir in bourbon and corn syrup.

Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar (or powdered sugar or baking cocoa).

Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 3 days before serving to blend flavors.

Bourbon can be substituted by ½ cup of brandy or ½ cup of rum.
