Place chopped nuts in a mason jar or similiar sealed container and add just enough bourbon to completely cover nuts.
Allow nuts several days to soak (you want all that goodness soaked in for the best flavor)
Drain nuts, saving the bourbon.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and powdered sugar until blended.
Add nuts and just enough bourbon to get the best consistency for rolling into balls.
Scoop out mixture with a tablespoon and roll into balls.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler until they are almost completely melted, but perfect for dipping (you want to temper the chocolate properly to avoid using that nasty paraffin wax)
Dip balls into chocolate, covering all sides, using a skewer and place onto wax paper to cool.
Store balls in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
