Bourbon Ball

Ruth Booe invented Bourbon Balls.
The idea of mixing candy and bourbon together was accidentally suggested by a dignitary at Frankfort's sesquicentennial celebration in 1936. He stated that the two best taste in the world are Mrs. Booe's candies and fine Kentucky Bourbon. Mrs. Booe worked on the recipe for two years before perfecting the still-secret process for blending bourbon and candy. And then history was made when "Bourbon Balls" were born!
