Double peanut butter chocolate covered cake balls. Need I say more?
If you ask me, peanut butter and chocolate is a match made in heaven. It’s a flavor combination I’ve loved for as long as I can remember. And ever since cake balls have come on the scene, I have enjoyed those tasty little treats. But what I haven’t loved is the fact that most recipes I’ve seen use a boxed cake mix and canned frosting. I wanted something I could make from scratch so when I came across this cookbook at the library a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was perfect for me to get the best of both worlds. And you may ask why it’s called Double Peanut Butter? Because not only is the cake peanut butter cake but the frosting is peanut butter frosting too (super yum!)
And, boy, was it worth the wait! My daughter helped me make these. They are so easy for kids to help with. The actual cake baking was not too bad but she especially liked the crumbling of the cake and the rolling of the balls—even your younger kids can help with those.
Other than the little bit of extra time it takes to make the cake and frosting from scratch, it really is a simple recipe. The only bad news is that they are so tasty, it’s hard to enjoy just one or two at a time! The good news is that they do freeze well which means you can not only make them ahead of time for your holiday treat trays, but maybe if they’re in the freezer, they are out of sight and out of mind and you might forget they are there so you’ll be less likely to indulge in more than you should!
That said, if you are a fan of the peanut butter and chocolate combination too, then these are a must make!
I hope you’ll give these double peanut butter chocolate covered cake balls a try! If you’re a fan of that flavor combination, you won’t be disappointed!
