Keep the chocolate over the hot water even when you remove it from the stove. I simply use two forks to roll the balls around in the chocolate one at a time; the fork also allows excess chocolate to drip easy away.
Some brands of vanilla cookies may be a bit less absorbent so don't be afraid to add more cookie crumbs if necessary.
You can also try placing the mixture into the fridge for a half hour or more to let the bourbon absorb and the mixture to chill a little before rolling into balls.
