Irish Cream Balls

I got this recipe years ago from a man I used to work with. His wife made them for us as a holiday treat, and we wasted no time in gobbling them down. Try and hide them and forget about them for about a week to let the flavours develop. You could also coat them in cocoa, icing sugar, or more vanilla wafer crumbs instead of coconut.
