A question about a recipe: Fudgy Bourbon Balls

E7bb51bf 2e65 405e 96ff 03e7c33549f4  122010f 698

I have a question about the recipe "Fudgy Bourbon Balls" from Amanda Hesser. Would brown rice syrup work here? Not a honey fan and as much as I like molasses, many people dont. Thanks

I don't see why you could not substitute the brown rice syrup for the honey. I would start with a lesser amount of brown rice syrup and assess for taste and binding. Brown rice syrup is a common binder in healthy bars that are on the market. Good luck!

I've made these many times. You don't taste the honey at all, but of course, go ahead and use the brown rice syrup. It will work just fine. ;o) P.S. Actually, I think the molasses is a great idea. You probably would taste it a bit, but molasses + chocolate is a great combination. I think I'll try it this year!

Or maple syrup or Golden Syrup, both of which have caramel flavors that work with the booze.

Thank you. I've never tasted nor used Golden Syrup but familiar with the can. What do you, like to use it for?

Sydney - I was introduced to Golden Syrup in a Laurie Colwin recipe for a very good gingerbread, which I still make.
Then, by extension, in similar spice cake recipes, on pancakes or where you'd normally use maple syrup.
Last, you can see uses in other categories (like duck breast or salad dressing) at various British sites:
