  • 1
    Heat oven to 250° F. Generously grease cookie sheets with shortening.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir powdered sugar, cookie crumbs, pecans, chocolate chips, bourbon and corn syrup until well mixed. Shape 1/2 teaspoonfuls into balls; place on sheet of waxed paper. (If necessary, flour hands to shape balls.)
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Stir in vanilla.
  • 4
    Drop balls 1 at a time into meringue. With spoon, coat well to form 1-inch balls; place on cookie sheets. Swirl top of meringue with spoon.
  • 5
    Bake 30 minutes or until meringue snowballs are crisp. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.

Expert Tips

  • Look for chocolate cookie crumbs near the graham cracker crumbs in the baking aisle of the supermarket.
  • Twenty crushed chocolate wafer cookies can be used in place of the chocolate cookie crumbs. To crush the wafers, place them in a plastic bag or between two pieces of waxed paper and roll with rolling pin. Measure 1/2 cup of the crushed wafers to use in the recipe.
  • Egg whites can be beaten to their highest volume when they are at room temperature. To bring to room temperature, place a small bowl of egg whites in a larger bowl of very warm water. Stir them gently for a few minutes.
