This came out well. I followed lots of the tips from the other reviewers. I soaked pecans in Devil's Cut bourbon for 1 week. Despite soaking for so long, the bourbon flavor is not overly strong, which is fine by me. I drained the remaining bourbon off the nuts and then chopped them in a food processor and set aside. I then mixed the butter and sugar in the food processor initially. It was dry so then mixed by hand in a bowl, where it finally came together into a dough-like consistency. Added the nuts and some vanilla (not in the recipe but made a good addition). Formed into balls (my mixture made way, way more than 24 balls, closer to 48). Put toothpicks in each ball and then put in the freezer for 1 hour. Dipped in melted chocolate to which I added 1 T of shortening to help the chocolate set. Fairly easy to remove the toothpicks after dipping and pretty easy to cover the hole left by the pick. I now have them stored in the fridge. I have made these ahead of time for a party I am having in 1 week. The trick will be not to eat them all before my guests come. Nice recipe. I'm pretty sure they will be a hit.
