Pecan Bourbon Balls

1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
2 pounds confectioner's sugar, plus 2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 1/2 pound chocolate-flavored candy coating, melted

Soak pecans in bourbon 3 hours or overnight, stirring occasionally. In large mixer bowl, beat margarine, vanilla and salt until fluffy; gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk then pecan mixture and confectioner's sugar until well blended. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on baking sheets. Chill until firm. With fork or wooden pick, dip each ball into warm candy coating; let excess coating drip off. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheets; let stand until firm. Store covered at room temperature or in refrigerator.
