If you’ve been around here long enough, you might remember how last year I made a batch of Baileys Tim Tam Cheesecake Balls. WELL!!! Let me tell you… I have never, ever received so many emails about one recipe. Yep, there are some HUGE boozy cheesecake ball fans out there. But I have to tell you that a lot of the emails I got were asking me to re-create the recipe using Kahlua. Apparently, there are a LOT of Kahlua fans out there too.

And so, because I’m always up for an experiment (and really any chance to make cheesecake balls is absolutely fine by me), I bring you… Kahlua Cheesecake Balls. 4 ingredients, no-bake, and seriously, seriously awesome. If you, or someone you know loves Kahlua, you might as well start doing a happy dance. These babies are definitely going to make you smile.

Now if 60ml of Kahlua isn’t enough for you… go ahead and add a little bit more. Why not! BUT don’t go too overboard or your cheesecake balls will be too soft and you’ll struggle to roll them into balls. If you do add a little extra Kahlua, you’ll find that you need to leave the mixture in the fridge or freezer just a bit longer for it to harden up.

These make the perfect adults-only dessert, a DIY foodie gift for a Kahlua-loving-friend, or just a fab little way to treat yourself.

OMG check out that deliciously smooth filling. How on earth could you resist? No really… you wont be able to. Just kiss goodbye to all the good intentions you have of just eating one. It will never, ever happen (and that I know from personal experience!).

I loved the baileys ones, I added some dried fruit to break up some of the super sweet in the recipe.

These sound lovely but how long would they last if you wanted to make them as a gift?
