  2. In a large bowl combine ground almonds, vanilla wafer crumbs, icing sugar, cocoa and pecans, whisk to combine.
  3. Stir in sour cream, Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur and cooled chocolate mixture, mix until combined, if too dry add more Baileys, if too wet add more vanilla wafer crumbs.
  4. Cover with saran wrap and chill overnight.
  5. The next day form balls with a scoop to keep sizes the same, place on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer to firm up.
