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.

Kahlua Cheesecake BallsNow 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.

    How do you get your chocolate so perfect on the outside? 🙂

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Leah, there’s no tricks!! Just make sure that you’re chocolate is melted and slightly cooled. Plus adding a drizzle of white chocolate will cover up any imperfections!! xx

  2. Tegan says:

    How many does this recipe make?

      It makes 20. xx

  3. Lynn says:

    These look delicious!! I live in the states and can’t find these cookies here. What do you recommend as a substitute??

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Lynn, you can use any cookies you like! Oreos give a really lovely rich flavour. xx

      1. Eliza says:

        I was just about to ask this question as well. Can’t wait to try it this weekend with Oreos

        1. Jean says:

          I also live in the states. Can’t seem to find the white chocolate tim tams, just the regular chocolate and white covered oreos are only sold during the hoidays, soooo I thought I would try the white chocolate kit kats. What do you think of that idea? Have you ever tried adding chopped up pecans or walnuts? Anyway, I loooove kahlua, so I can’t wait to try them. Think I’ll make some today.
          Thanks for posting. 🙂

          1. Bake Play Smile says:

            Absolutely!! I think they would work! Otherwise you can use normal Oreos! And yes you can definitely add chopped nuts!

  4. Amanda says:

    For the chocolate, is it okay to use Nestle chips?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      As long as you can melt them, that’s fine!

  5. Kath says:

    These sounds lovely. I’d like to try making them with dark chocolate Tim Tams,. Would I need to change anything?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Not at all! They’ll work beautifully!!
