Description

I took the cake balls idea from Bakerella and PioneerWoman and ran with it! Leftover peanut butter/ sweetened condensed milk mixture from another product morphed into the most delectable filling for a rich chocolate cake ball! These actually freeze quite well. I know this because the only reason I have some left a week after I made them is because they were in the freezer!

Ingredients

  • 1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • 8 ounces, fluid Sweetened, Condensed Milk
  • 1 can Fudge Frosting
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 1 package Chocolate Chips
  • 1 package Peanut Butter Chips
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil

Preparation

Prepare cake according to package directions for a 9×13 inch pan. Cool.

Meanwhile, combine peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk. Add cream cheese and stir until uniform in color. Set aside.

Crumble cooled cake into a large bowl, making a pile of fine crumbs. Mix in frosting. Set aside in refrigerator.

Form peanut butter mixture into small (1/2 inch) balls, place on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and form 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of cake mixture around each peanut butter ball. Place cake balls in freezer and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in one bowl and peanut butter chips in another. Stir 1 tablespoon canola oil into each. Coat cake balls in either chocolate or peanut butter chips, let set on waxed paper. Any remaining melted chocolate or peanut butter chips can be drizzled over the cake balls. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator or freezer.

Holy Richness!!!! I just made a batch of these last night (more than 50!) and I can’t believe how rich these are. They’re divine. I wouldn’t have categorized them as ‘easy’ though, because they take a lot of prep. And I’m glad my husband had disposable ‘hospital’ gloves out in his garage, because that made clean up so much easier! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
