Southern Bourbon Balls made with Crunchy Almond Flour Cookies Cinnamon Recipe

Ingredients:

1 box Simple Mills Crunchy Toasted Pecan Cookies 
1 box Simple Mills Crunchy Cinnamon Cookies
2 tbsp cacao powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup toasted pecans + more chopped pecans for topping
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp Simple Mills Chocolate Frosting, melted

Topping:
¾ cup of chopped dark chocolate (Option: use dairy-free dark chocolate to make this recipe dairy-free)

Instructions:

PROCESS cookies, cacao powder, cinnamon and pecans in a food processor until a fine meal is formed.
ADD bourbon and 1/4 cup melted frosting and process until you can form a ball using your hands. If not sticky enough, melt 1 additional tablespoon of chocolate frosting and blend again.
FORM balls of about 1 tablespoon using your hands. 
REFRIGERATE for 30 minutes.
LINE a baking dish or large plate with parchment paper, set aside.
MELT dark chocolate over a double boiler. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate. 
SHAKE off the excess and arrange on prepared parchment-line dish. 
GARNISH with chopped pecans.
TRANSFER baking dish to the fridge to set.

Tips:

Alternative coating: Instead of dipping each ball into melted chocolate, you can also roll them in cacao powder.

Toasting pecans: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Arrange pecans on a baking dish and bake for 5 minutes or until fragrant. Let cool for 10 minutes before using in the recipe.
