Notes

RECIPE NOTES
Tim Tam substitutes - Tim Tams are an Australian cookie made by Arnott's. If you are unable to buy them, you can substitute them with any other white chocolate coated cookie. For something a little different, you could use Oreos in place of the Tim Tams (this will give you a beautifully dense chocolatey flavour).
Adults-only dessert - this recipe is made using Baileys Irish cream and therefore contains alcohol. 
Cream cheese - I recommend using full fat cream cheese for this recipe. I generally use Philly (Philadelphia brand) but you can use any brand you like. 
Chilling the mixture - once you’ve prepared the mixture, chill it in the freezer (or fridge) for 30 minutes. This will allow it to harden enough to roll into balls. The heat from your hands will make the balls sticky when you roll them, so it’s important to place the rolled balls back into the freezer (or fridge) for a further 30 minutes before dipping them in the melted chocolate. 
Baileys substitutes - you can substitute the Baileys Irish cream for a different alcohol such as Kahlua. Or for a non-alchohlic version, you could replace the Baileys with coffee, or omit the liquid entirely.
Storing the cheesecake balls - store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
