Kentucky Bourbon Balls
Shazam, these are way too sweet. This is my first time eating a bourbon ball so I'll assume this is normal and won't rate based on taste. However, I was guided to this recipe by the instructional video and it wasn't until I was up to my knuckles in a mealy butter/sugar mixture that I realized the recipe didn't follow the video. The vanilla was missing, the video appears to use way less sugar, and the ingredients are mixed in a different order. What gives, KY Piano teacher? Did Allrecipes ruin your good recipe? Thanks for submitting it. Now I have a bottle of KY bourbon so maybe I'll make a cocktail.

Meringue Cookies
Mixed these in my Ninja blender using small pitcher, paddle, and lowest setting. After stiff peaks, poured sugar through spout while beating. Then turned out into bowl and folded in chips. Note these are extremely sweet, and I used less sugar and fewer chips than the recipe called for. You can go with half. I also let the egg whites reach room temp before beating. Baked at stated time for 25 mins, then turned off oven and let sit another 10. Perfect. I live in northeast and it's cold here so no humidity problems.

Chocolate Glaze I
I made this twice (double batch both times) and I discovered the sequence of events that make this like a glaze, or make it thick. Frankly, I liked the way it turned out in the thick version for frosting the top of a single layer cake (the garbonzo bean choc cake which is better than it sounds.) For a glaze, microwave the chips and syrup together until melted. Then add all the butter and stir like crazy. For a thick fudgy frosting, melt the chips, then add the corn syrup and stir. It will seem too thick. Then add the butter about a teaspoon at a time until you get the consistency you want. It's tasty either way.
