Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup irish cream
  • 14 cup milk chocolate
  • 1 cup coconut


  1. Crush the vanilla wafers- a food processor is the fastest for this.
  2. Melt the chocolate and add to the crushed wafers, along with the liqueur.
  3. Roll into small balls and roll in coconut to coat.
  4. Refrigerate to set, then pack in containers and keep refrigerated.

These are great. I made several variations and put on a platter at the holiday buffet. You can coat them in cocoa, icing sugar, nuts, toffee bits or more vanilla wafer crumbs as well as coconut. I like to double this recipe and keep it handy during the holidays. Thanks for sharing! ~V

I wasn't too sure what you meant by 1/4 C of milk chocolate - 1/4 C of shaved or what so I just used 2 ounces of chocolate. That seemed to work fine. They are a nice change of pace from bourbon balls.
