Do you love to make and bake gifts to give for the Holidays?  Think about those people you want to give something to, but they’re not really on your  “gift giving list.”  Neighbors, hostesses, teachers, can all benefit from a couple of hours you spend in the kitchen on a weekend afternoon.  In fact next to a bottle of spirits, food is my favorite gift to receive!

I created this recipe for Kahlúa balls which makes a fantastic little gift to share. If you’re a fan of bourbon balls or rum balls, you’re gonna love these!

To compliment these little dessert balls I couldn’t help but think of “milk.”  Of course this duet is a grown up version of cookies & milk and this drink is best served in a martini glass!
