Chocolate-Peanut-Butter Cake Balls — 29 Comments

  1. Try a red velvet cake mix and use cream cheese tub frosting (or make your own) and dip in white chocolate…..yummy! I had never thought about chocolate and peanut butter. As soon as the outside temperature cools down to a tolerable level I will bake, until then popsicles only! Hope y’all are doing good!!!!

    • I’m with MrsCoach … no baking here until the weather is cooler!!! Popsicles only in the Gustafson house. Unless, of course, someone baked some yummy Lolli-Cakes for me!

  2. Well, you posted the recipe…Does that mean you’re not going to bring some to Tar Baby and me for our birthdays in August?
    I’ve got to get the milk chocolate for dipping. I’ve got everything else in the pantry. I may have to wait till I have the kids and grandchildren over since it makes so many. It’s a safe bet… I’ll make ’em, eat ’em and then forget to check my blood glucose levels!

    • Dear, dear Steffi – I regret to inform you that you will have to lick the screen because Tar Baby is coming HERE on August 5th and maybe, just maybe I froze one for him. I’m not sure how they freeze, though! Yes, make them with the grandkids! They’ll love it!

    • I would be honored if you bake them and let me know if you like them! Then, let me know if you would like to share the recipe with your readers! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, Laura! BW

  3. Dear Folks,
    When you make a special request, I do my best to fulfill your request, so after you ask, please make sure you subscribe to upcoming posts so you don’t miss out on something like this recipe! Thanks! BW

  4. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I too love peanut butter and chocolate. And as soon as I can light the oven without having a heat stroke, I will definitely be making them!! I have made one batch of the cake bites last year for Christmas or Thanksgiving. I made a chocolate covered cherry cake w/chocolate icing and dipped it in white almond bark. My grandkids loved them and between them and the neighbors, they really disappeared fast. I did make them a couple of weeks ahead of time and froze them before dipping. They did very good.

  5. I feel fat just looking at pix. I really need to make some of blu’s ultimate pnut butter chocolate chip rice crispie treats. I know the big red dutch oven will work great.

  6. Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake Bites

    1 (18.25 oz) box of a rich chocolate cake such as devil’s food w/pudding
    1 (21 oz) can cherry pie filling
    2 large eggs
    1 tsp. almond extract

    Spray a 13×9 pan w/non-stick spray. Heat oven to 350º.
    Put all 4 ingredients into a large mixing bowl & blend w/electric mixer on low for one minute. Scrape down sides w/spatula. Increase speed to medium and beat 2 more minutes, scraping sides of bowl if needed. Batter will be thick. Pour into prepared pan and bake 30-35 min or until top springs back when pressed lightly and sides begin to pull away from pan. Remove from oven and cool.
    Once cool, break it up into a large bowl and add one tub of your favorite chocolate frosting. Mix well. I like to cool it in the fridge for an hour or so before rolling it into bite size balls. (Use BW’s instructions above for rolling, chilling, etc.) Once rolled and cooled, Melt a 20 oz package of almond flavored dipping candy per package instructions and dip cake bites into it using a toothpick or a fork. Place on a silicone lined cookie sheet (or use wax paper or parchment paper) to dry and harden.

    If you can’t find almond flavored melts, use vanilla flavored and once melted, add about 4 drops of almond extract to it.

    My husband loves for me to make the cake, poke holes in it w/a wooden spoon handle, melt the icing and pour over it. One of his favorites.

  7. Oh, my gosh. All of this sounds so good. I’m going to have to find an “occasion” to make them, though, because I dare not make them without having other little mouths to shove them into. 😉 I am quite capable of doing serious damage to a whole pile of those things!

    One of my favorite things is brownies with pecans and toffee bits in them. I’ll bet a little messing around would make that adaptable for cake bites!

  8. Whoa. That looks totally good (I mean bad) for you! I bet they’re too good for words.

    BTW, we are now Community Coffee drinkers! I was searching for some less costly decaf beans online and they won. Great coffee 🙂

    • Oh, wonderful about the Community Coffee! Glad you like it. I guess that means you never won one of their prizes back when they were sponsoring my blog? If you had, you would have become a drinker way back then! What is your current favorite bean of choice? I’m drinking House Blend, although we usually drink Between Roast, just plain old dark roast!!! BW
