Equipment

  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper/Parchment paper
  • Food processor
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Mini Cookie Scoop
  • Large heatproof jug
  • Fork
  • Wooden skewers
  • Zip lock bag

Ingredients

  • 400g sweet vanilla biscuits/cookies Note 1
  • 250g cream cheese roughly chopped Note 2
  • ½ cup (120ml) Baileys Irish Cream
  • 2 cups white chocolate Note 3
  • 1 cup milk chocolate

Instructions

  • Line a baking tray with parchment/baking paper and set aside
  • Add biscuits to the bowl of the food processor and blitz for 15 - 20 seconds until they are a fine crumb.
  • Add roughly chopped cream cheese pieces and Baileys. Blitz for 20-25 seconds till mix comes together to form a wet dough
  • Use a mini cookie scoop to portion out the mix into 30 pieces
  • Use dry hands to roll the portions into smooth round balls, place in the freezer for 10 mins
  • Add white chocolate to heatproof jug, microwave for 1 min, stir, then microwave again in 30 second periods, till melted (2 x 30, stirring in between)
  • Remove cheesecake balls from the freezer and bring together on the bench with the melted white chocolate. Working quickly, use a fork in one hand with cheesecake ball on it and dunk them in the chocolate, using a skewer in the other hand, transfer to lined baking tray. Repeat to coat all Baileys Cheesecake Balls in white chocolate, place in fridge for 5 mins
  • Add milk chocolate to heatproof microwave jug. Microwave for 1 min, then 2 x 30 second periods, stirring in between.
  • Remove Baileys Cheesecake Balls from the fridge. Transfer melted chocolate to a zip lock bag, seal and snip the end off. Using a wide diagonal right to left movement, drizzle each cheesecake ball with milk chocolate. Place in fridge to set.
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week

Notes

  • Note 1 I use 2 x 200 gram packets of plain vanilla biscuits (no sugar on top). You can use shortbread biscuits to the equivalent also if you wish.
  • Note 2 You can use either a block of cream cheese or a spreadable tub of the equivalent measurement. I interchange them at times and find no great difference in the results. 
  • Note 3 We use the white chocolate as the main coating to the Baileys Cheesecake Balls. 
  • Note 4 We use the milk chocolate to decorate as we drizzle it over the white chocolate coating on the balls.
