Low Carb Kentucky Bourbon Balls are perfect for your holiday cookie tray or a Kentucky Derby Party. A combination of crunchy chopped pecans, chocolate, and bourbon make these candy balls a delicious southern sweet treat.
Place butter and erythritol in a large bowl and use a hand-held mixer to beat them until combined.
Mix in the bourbon and vanilla extract.
Mix in the chopped pecans. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape mixture into 12 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper. Refrigerate for another hour.
Place chococlate chips and avocado oil in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 30 second increments, stirring after each one, until melted.
Using a fork or toothpick dip and coat each ball in the melted chocolate and return to parchment paper. Press a pecan half into the top of each one. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Serving size is one piece.
For best results, use a quality bourbon. I like to use Maker's Mark.
