Kahlua • Mudslide • Bailey's No Bake Cookie Balls

Nor M.


I love making all kinds of different dessert balls.They are so easy. Yet they are so delicious. No baking involved. This is a great one for us over 21 years of age. Yes I made mudslide balls. You can also use this recipe to make Kahlua balls,or just plain Baileys Irish cream balls. One recipe 3 desserts! Just divide the dry ingredients before adding liquor,and make all 3 liquor flavored balls.How great is that? Enjoy!

How to Make Kahlua • Mudslide • Bailey's No Bake Cookie Balls


  • 1whisk together the Vanilla wafer crumbs,and powdered sugar. (At this point if you are making 2 different flavored balls. Divide the ingredients in half in to 2 bowls) (If making one flavored ball recipe skip dividing cookie sugar mixture)
  • 2Add liquor.Don't forget to cut Liquor in half if divided in 2 bowls. 2 ball recipes 1/2 cup liquor each bowl!!
    Choose liquor and mix in really really well with your hands. 1/2 cup Kahlua mixed with 1/2 cup of Baileys Irish cream,For mudslide balls.
    (1 cup Baileys Irish cream) or
    ( 1 cup Kahlua)

    Choose liquor and mix in really really well with your hands.
  • 3Add the corn syrup last. Mix well with your hands.Refrigerate for a couple hours,or put in the freezer for an hour. You want the dough to be stiff enough to make balls with.
  • 4make small balls about 1- 1 1/2 inches wide. Line up on wax paper lined pan.
  • 5melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler with 1 tsp of shortening.stir until melted. Dip balls in chocolate. I use a dinner teaspoon to coat them. (if you are going to roll them in nuts. Do so at this time,and put on waxed paper)or sprinkle with colored candies etc. while chocolate is still liquid on the balls.If not then Let some chocolate drip of before putting on a wax paper lined sheet pan.
  • 6put in fridge for a bit until chocolate sets up.There you have it. All done. store on loose covered container. I usually keep mine in the fridge and take out before serving.
  • 7To make the balls look like mine. I put colored white chocolate candy melts in a food processor to grind up for sprinkling on balls. Red and green for Christmas. Easter or other holidays use different colors like pastels. etc.
