Kahlua Cheesecake Balls image

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.

  1. I love Kahlua – it’s my favourite! I’m going to be all over these. Amazeballs!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Definitely one of my faves too!!

  2. Kelly says:

    How long do you think these will keep?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      In an airtight container in the fridge they will last 4-5 days (as long as the cream cheese is in date of course!!).

  3. Rachel says:

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

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oooh thats a brilliant idea!!!!

  4. Traicy says:

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

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      If they’re kept in the fridge in an airtight container (and your cream cheese is well in date), they’ll last 4-5 days 🙂

  5. Donna Silvestro says:

    Hi Lucy, I am having trouble printing the recipe for the Kahlua Cheesecake Balls. Not sure what is happening. Printed the other recipes but can’t print the Kahlua one.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Donna, I’m so sorry that you are unable to print the recipe. I’ve just tried to print it off my computer and have been able to do so. I think that the issue might be that the recipe plugin hasn’t been updated with the new iOs updates for phones and iPads. I’m swapping to a new recipe plugin which is being released later this month so that should solve the issue then. Until then, if you could print off your computer or otherwise screenshot and print. Sorry!

  6. These are a winner and would make wonderful Christmas treats – I can’t believe I’ve even thought about Christmas already!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Thank you!! I know… I’m thinking about it too!

  7. I used to drink Kahlua at university – I think if I were to make them, I would be transported back to late night parties and drinking way too much.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hahahaha yes that might very well be the case!!

  8. Oh my goodness, these look AMAZING! Like Shari I also drank Kahlua back in my uni days, ahh the memories!

  9. Sarah says:

    Hi there. What do you think would be the max amount of Kahlua u could put in there he he sounds yummy!!!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Haha no you can definitely add a little more (you’ll just need to chill the mixture for a bit longer to firm it up enough!). xx

  10. jayne says:

    Oh wow all my favourites in one delicious little ball! what a fab recipe Lucyq

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Thanks so much Jayne!

  11. Kelly says:

    Hi these look delicious but is there an option without the alcohol for the kiddies?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      There sure is! Try these ones: http://www.bakeplaysmile.com/cheesecake-balls/
      🙂

  12. janet long says:

    what are the tim tam cookies. never heard of them before.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      They’re a biscuit made by Arnotts. You can substitute them for any cookie you like!

  13. Lena says:

    How far in advance do you think you could make these? I have a holiday party six days from now that I wanted to make them for – if I store them in the refrigerator do you think they’ll stay good?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Lena, as long as the cream cheese has a long expiry date on it, they should last in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. 🙂

  14. Taylor says:

    Do you think you would be able to store these in the freezer to prepare further in advance? If so would you recommend doing the chocolate coating after taking them out of the freezer?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Taylor, yes you can but I would recommend doing the chocolate once they’re defrosted 🙂

  15. Leah says:

    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

  16. Tegan says:

    How many does this recipe make?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      It makes 20. xx

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. 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!!
