Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Balls
This recipe was inspired from Bakerella. I love her website with her creations of adorable cake pops and balls.
What you’ll need for the cake: Chocolate cake mix (oil, eggs, water, PB optional), chocolate frosting, peanut butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips, little papers to set them in.
Pour in the cake mix.
Follow steps on box: Add oil.
Now add the PB, this is my special touch. I added 2 HEAPING tablespoons.
Follow directions and beat with a mixer.
Bake as directed on box (mine took 32 minutes).
Let cake cool.
Mix together equal parts of PB…
And chocolate frosting (this was half the jar).
Mmm, I could eat this with a spoon.
Start scooping out the cake.
That’s a lot of crumbled cake.
Dump in frosting.
Start mixing with your hands.
That really compacts the cake.
Start rolling into balls. It makes LOTS. When you get a pan full (trust me, you’ll have more than one pan full), stick it into the freezer for at least an hour.
Finally the last one. It took forever. I dunno how Bakerella does it.
Remove from freezer and poke with a toothpick.
I forgot to photograph the pouring of the chocolate chips and melting them. I just did a little at a time and melted them in the microwave until smooth. Roll the top in chocolate. I tried to do the whole ball, but that was too much work!
See how nice it works.
Chocolate coated and not.
Pour in some more chocolate chips and melt them. You don’t want to melt too many at a time because the chocolate will get too stiff.
Lay out your paper cups.
After chocolate has set, place them into the paper cups.
Line up on a tray.
Melt equal parts of peanut butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave, until smooth.
Spoon into a ziplock bag.
Snip a teeny, tiny hole and start to drizzle on the cake balls. This is what makes them look professional.
Lots and lots of yummy peanut butter chocolate cake balls!
