Easy and elegant Kahlua bites recipe


This treat can be easily put together. It takes just a few ingredients and minimum time shaping the balls. Since there is no baking involved, this is a great recipe to have handy to take care of a sweet tooth or to give as a present to any friend or family member. There are many variations of these bite-sized treats in numerous old-fashioned recipes.  Try substituting ingredients that add your own special touch.  Different liqueurs and coatings can add unique flavors and textures.  This is a great recipe for kids to try and they can give you plenty of advice about what flavors they would like to have in the recipe!   

1 c. finely crushed vanilla wafers
1 c. confectioners' sugar
1 c. chopped nuts
2 tbsp. cocoa
2 tbsp. corn syrup 
1/4 c. Kahlua
1/4 c. milk
Granulated sugar

Stir together dry ingredients and incorporate the syrup, Kahlua and milk, mixing well. Form into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Store in an airtight container. For this recipe I had some coarse grained decorating sugar that I rolled them in.  It really added lots of sparkle to the bites.
