A Bit About Our Balls


* All our balls contain nuts and some type of alcohol (liqueur).
* Please avoid if you are pregnant.  We would not want to harm your little one.
*  You must be over 21 years of age to consume.

Do you offer bourbon balls without liquor?

We have the greatest respect for those of you who are teetotalers, however, at this time, we do not. 

Is the bourbon/liqueur cooked out?

We add the bourbon/spirit/liqueur right at the end, so the spirit can mingle with the chocolate and pecans, to tantalize your taste buds 

Can I get drunk from eating your bourbon balls?

Highly unlikely.  The balls are bite-sized, maybe two bite-sized, so you would have to eat a lot of them. You are more likely to experience a sugar high, than a buzz, so we feel it is a safe indulgence.  Remember, you must be over 21 years of age to eat these decadent treats, and if you are concerned about driving after eating our bourbon balls, we ask that you eat in moderation and drive responsibly or abstain, until you are home safely.

How long do the bourbon balls last once I purchase them?

They can be kept at room temperature for several hours.   If they last that long, congratulations, for showing unbelievable self-restraint. However, they can also be placed in the refrigerator, in a sealed tight container, to avoid coming in contact with other odors, for up to 4 weeks or for 2 months in the freezer.  When you are ready to eat or serve them, allow them to return to room temperature and enjoy! The spirits will mellow within 3 days and the bourbon/spirit will be more developed.

Do you offer gluten-free bourbon balls?

We respect everyone's dietary needs, however at this time, we do not offer a gluten-free option.

Is your commercial kitchen a nut-free facility?

Our products are made in a commercial kitchen and we primarily use pecans in our recipes.  However, there may be times when we choose to use a variety of other nuts, as we continue to develop new recipes.  If you have any peanut or nut allergy, we would recommend you not consume our products. 

What spirits/liqueurs do you use?

Great Question!  With so many people, there are so many favorites.  However, we are a Kansas City local business, and have made a commitment to support our local distilleries, on both sides of the state line.  They are producing excellent tasting spirits and we are sure you will agree. 

Do you accommodate Events and Large Orders?
