Similar to rum balls, but with a coffee-Kahlua flavour instead. From Chatelaine magazine.

Top Review by Mia in Germany

Made them to use up a bag of gluten and fructose free cookies which were impossible to eat... I think this recipe improved the cookies very much, but the cookies didn't improve the recipe. I don't like the strong Kahlua taste, so I gave them to MIL who said they were good. Made for Comfort Cafe Snowqueen's Round 2010.
