I was given the option to review some "No Bake Boozy Bites" by Cakes Under the Influence! What a fun product to keep for quick, tasty, and easy treats, or a fun gift idea. There are five great flavors to choose from and you can mix and match your liquid add-ins for different flavor options.
I made a batch of the "drunken monkey" no bake bites which have banana chips and coconut flakes too - yumm!
The no-bake batter comes together quickly and easily. Just roll the formed balls in some powdered sugar (or dip / drizzle with melted chocolate!) and store in a tupperware in the refrigerator.

No Bake Boozy Bites are fun, delicious and so EASY to make! No baking required. Just add 2 or 2.5 oz of rum, tequila, brandy, whisky or other liquid flavoring to the mix, form into 1/2 inch balls, toss with powdered sugar and refrigerate.
The final bites come out rich, moist and delicious. They are like the old 'rum balls' but with some modern flavors.
There are five flavors to choose from:
- Margarita (Lime, Orange and a hint of Vanilla). Use Tequila, Rum or Orange Juice
- Pina Colada (Pineapple and Coconut). Use Rum, Whiskey or Coconut Water
- Drunken Monkey (Banana, Chocolate and a hint of coffee). Use Dark Rum, Whiskey or Chocolate Milkk
- Cranberry Cocoa (Cranberry, Cocoa, and a bit of vanilla cream). Use Brandy, Vodka or Cosmo Mix
- Peppermint Cream (Peppermint, Cocoa and a bit of cream). Use Brandy, Rum or Chocolate Milk.
Each packet makes about 24 1/2 inch size bites. These make a nice addition to a home party, a BBQ, and as a hostess gift.
For a fun option consider coating each Bite with Melted Chocolate. Just melt 1/2 C chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle on top of each ball. We suggest you place each ball on parchment paper. Then cool and enjoy.
Keep finished balls in airtight container in the refrigerator.
