Chocolate Brandy Balls

This is a recipe that my mom used to make for Christmas. I have no idea where she got this one, but we loved to sneak these out of the refrigerator when we were kids. We thought we were being so bad. We had no idea how little alcohol is really in them, but after a week or so in a sealed container in the refrigerator, the fumes when you opened it would just knock you over.

Chocolate Brandy Balls

1 6 oz package of semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. vanilla wafer crumbs
3/4 c. finely chopped walnuts, plus 1 c. finely chopped walnuts
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 T. melted butter
1 T. brandy or rum

Melt the chocolate chips and stir in vanilla wafer crumbs, 3/4 c. walnuts, sour cream, sugar, butter and liquor. Chill for several hours. Roll into balls the size of a marble (I use the large end of a melon baller, then roll in my hand). Drop into 1 c. of walnuts and roll until lightly coated. Store covered in the refrigerator.
