Recipe: Brownie Cake Balls

Image
Yay! I finally made some cake balls! Sans the fancy lollipop stick, these petite treats still look pretty to eat ala chocolate truffle style.


BROWNIE CAKE BALLS

1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt

chocolate candy melts
candy sprinkles
cake lollipop pop sticks

1. Combine all dry ingredients. Melt butter. Let cool and add eggs and vanilla extract. Add the combined dry ingredients. Mix well. Using a 1 and 1/2 inch melon baller, scoop chocolate brownie into balls. Arrange on a wax paper lined tray and chill for 30 minutes.

2. Melt chocolate candy melts in the microwave or double boiler. Insert lollipop sticks into balls.

2. Dip chocolate brownie balls into melted chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate. Decorate with sprinkles. Let chocolate dry off before serving.

“Did you ever fly a kite in bed?  Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?  Did you ever milk this kind of cow?  Well, we can do it. We know how.  If you never did, you should.  These things are fun and fun is good.”
