This was such an easy recipe to create and I had great results! I gave some of them to my dinner guests and neighbors, but made sure I had enough left over to take care of an occasional chocolate craving. The vanilla wafers and nuts really added a great texture to the balls -- I used pecans vs. walnuts. Your recipe really made a great hit at my Thanksgiving dinner!
Very good recipe, creating tasty and firm balls. I might try hazelnuts next time, nice with coffee flavor.
I was not a huge fan of these. The Kahlua just overpowers the taste of the truffles.
These were pretty good. Made for the Christmas party we hosted. Didn't seem to go over very well but we had a lot of food! I cheated and heated the chips in the microwave instead of a double boiler and it worked fine. Thanks for posting.
These are fantastic little treats! I made as directed with Kahlua, but will be playing with the flavors in the future! Thanks for posting!
Oh, my goodness! I made these yesterday for an early Christmas party and they got absolutely rave reviews. I substituted Baileys for the Kahlua, and used plain biscuits for the vanilla wafers. These were just gorgeous! I'm going to make this a lot throughout the next few weeks and am going to have a lot of fun playing with different things here - Grand Marnier and dark chocolate will be a divine combination. Not to mention Frangelico and hazelnuts - I love the combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. Thank you so much, Kitten. This is definitely one of the best recipes I've made in ages!
Okay, mine are really Chocolate Kahlua Pecan Slices but are as delicious as everyone else said. However, I did not chop my pecans (subbing for walnuts, of course) quite finely enough, and when I started forming the balls I had trouble. (This is a common problem of mine---I think I may just not be patient enough.) Anyway, I formed the mixture into a log on waxed paper, wrapped in aluminum foil and put in the freezer for about 45 minutes. Then I sliced about 1/2 inch thick and proceeded with the powdered sugar. It worked beautifully and was much easier to me. I think I ended up with about 55. I am looking forward to including these in my gift bags of treats. Thanks for a great recipe.
These balls are wonderful! They remind me of a chocolate ball my mom made at Christmastime when I was a child--what wonderful memories! I decided to use Godiva Chocolate Liqueur instead of Kahlua or rum. I also rolled the balls in regular sugar. Thanks so much, Kitten.
These were great.. I made them with non-alcoholic Kahlua.. It's really made to add to coffee but I wanted to make this recipe and I knew my grandchildren would be eating them.. Also, few in my family use alcohol... not for any particular reason. Anyway, they came out fine and definately with a Kahlua flavor. Thanks for the recipe.
