ALRIGHTY Y'all I just kind of stumbled on this recipe! I make Kahlua Balls already BUT....my Hubby stopped to pick up my liquors for my holiday baking and grabbed the new Kahlua with chili. So I worked with it :) Regular Kahlua Balls?... These blow them out of the water or liquor lol Creamy smooth chocolaty center, crunch from the walnuts and BAMM the heat from the Chipotle Chili pepper powder. Just enough heat to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. These were gone before they were served! If you are a fan of chocolate and hot chili flavors this is one for you!

serves 10-12 (time shown is for mixing and chilling time)

How To Make kahlÚa bombs

  • 1
    Measure your half cup of Kahlua and add corn syrup (and chili powder if using regular Kahlua) to it mix until the corn syrup is dissolved into the Kahlua. This ensures the corn syrup and chili powder does not glob up into one spot.
  • 2
    Add all other ingredients to a mixing bowl and pour Kahlua, corn syrup and chili mixture over it and mix until all is combined. Mixture will be sticky and look like it might not hold together to well.
  • 3
    Place mixture in fridge for 2 hours. When set up roll into bite size balls.
  • 4
    Place balls in fridge for 1 hour to firm back up. You can leave the balls in the fridge for up to 3 days before you roll them.
  • 5
    Roll in confectioners sugar or any thing you would like! I did mine in Confectioners sugar, Crushed walnuts and Sprinkles.
  • 6
    Keep in fridge until ready to serve. Will last for 7 days if kept chilled.
