Quick No-bake Pecan Bourbon Balls
December can be such a warm and joyful time of year. But it's also a very busy month. My calendar is marked with the usual book club and birthday party gatherings and also a few holiday parties, one of which I'm hosting. These no-bake pecan bourbon balls make perfect party food. They're not only tasty, but quick and easy to make. No baking required. You can whip up a batch in less time than it takes to preheat the oven.
