Saketini Christmas Balls

Naughty...but sooo nice. Chocolate, crushed pecans, sake wine and vanilla vodka and cookies combine to create these sensational Christmas treats.

This recipe is adapted from a rum ball recipe at Taste of Home.

  • 2 ½ cups vanilla wafer crumbs plus additional for garnish
  • 1 cup ground pecans
  • 1 cup powdered sugar plus additional for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cocoa powder (the kind you use for hot chocolate)
  • ¼  cup Saketini
    (4 ounces vanilla vodka plus 2 teaspoons sake wine;
    you’ll have an extra sip or two for you)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons water

In a large bowl, whisk together the wafer crumbs, pecans, powdered sugar, and cocoa.

Stir together the Saketini, honey and water. Microwave for 33 seconds to allow the honey to melt. Stir again. Pour into the crumb mixture.
