Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownie Balls

You HAVE TO make these.  They are easy and incredibly… Chocolatey. I’m trying out cake balls, cake pops, marshmallow pops and anything else I can put on a stick. Little individual treats that can be beautifully displayed at parties.

I haven’t made the actual cake balls yet, but I tried these to get familiarized with the method. Just bake brownies from a mix, or from your favorite recipe and while they are still warm form balls, which will then be dipped in melted chocolate and sprinkled with candy.   Easy and a great idea to give brownies a different twist.

Adapted from The Picky Palete

Ingredients

1 brownie mix
6 ounces of semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup peanut butter
Candy Sprinkles for decorating
You will also need wax paper to line a cookie sheet

Procedure:

  1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.
  2. Bake until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center but still slightly undercooked. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes.
  3. When you are able to touch brownies comfortably, scoop brownies with a medium cookie scoop, roll tightly into a ball and place onto a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Continue rolling until brownies are gone.
  5. Freeze brownies until very firm, a couple hours.
  6. No worries if your brownie balls aren’t perfect, once frozen reshape them. They are easier to handle when chilled.
  7. Place chocolate over a double broiler to melt, then stir in peanut butter until creamy smooth.
  8. Roll each frozen brownie ball into chocolate and place onto wax paper to dry. Enjoy room temperature or chilled.
