Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 cups chopped pecans plus additional pecans for topping
  • 8 graham crackers
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon or vanilla
  • 20 ounces dark chocolate chips 2 10 ounce bags

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place pecans on baking sheet. Toast in oven for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  • Place graham crackers in a large food processor. Pulse until they resemble fine crumbs.
  • Add pecans and pulse until fine crumbs.
  • add brown sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup, salt, and bourbon. Pulse until it comes together.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and mix together completely. I like to use my hands to get it completely combined.
  • Form into 2-tablespoon sized truffles. I used a cookie dough scoop and then pressed it together in a ball with my hands.
  • Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Once ready to dip, place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave in 20-second intervals until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Dip each truffle in the chocolate, then immediately sprinkle with a teaspoon of chopped pecans.
  • Let cool on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • Note: these can be also be frozen.
