Some of my favourites versions are classic Oreo Truffles, Caramel Tim Tam Balls (LOVE these!!), Mint Slice Balls, Peppermint Crisp Balls, Kahlua Balls, and of course, my Baileys Cheesecake Balls (drooling…). Yep, if you’ve got fabulous tastebuds, there’s a cheesecake ball variety that will tickle your fancy – I promise!

They really do have the best of both worlds with that amazingly rich chocolate flavour… and the BEST little caffeine hit (actually you can make the caffeine hit as big or as small as you like).

Do you want to know something funny? Before Will was born I had never, ever drunk coffee. Not even once! Occasionally I’d have a mocha (but with lots of chocolate and not much coffee), but never a proper coffee. I honestly think Will was only a couple of days old when I started craving coffee. Weird… and probably down to sleep deprivation! But now I’ve become so addicted – especially to my 7am latte.

Anyway, if you’re a coffee addict, you’ll absolutely adore these mocha cheesecake balls, but even if you’re not a coffee drinker you’ll still love them! The rich chocolate flavour is just so irresistible. Oooh one little thing to note with this recipe – I used Arnott’s chocolate ripple biscuits, but if you’re not in Australia, you can use any plain chocolate biscuit variety you like.

And with that, I’m off to make my morning latte before Will wakes up (and yes… this is pretty much the only time I get work done nowadays!!). Please pinky promise me you’ll try a batch of cheesecake balls soon – they’re pretty much guaranteed to change your life for the better.
