Another sneak peak at 101 Gourmet Cake Bites…. a new recipe you will all love and cherish… at least I’d like to think you will. It’s one of my favorites. And you know how much I love chocolate and peanut butter….. The picture says it all. Marielle Hayes Photography did the photos again. She makes my treats look mouth watering, doesn’t she?
I hope you enjoy the recipe. Happy Baking!
1 box dark chocolate cake mix
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¾ cup half and half
Mix together cake mix, eggs, vanilla extract and half and half.
Batter will be thicker. Pour batter into a greased 9×13 baking pan. Bake at 350
degrees for 28-32 minutes, until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove
from the oven and cool completely. Crumble cake into small, even pieces, placing
crumbs in a large bowl.
Add the following ingredients:
1 cup Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting or 1 cup Peanut Butter Frosting
3 pkg. (1.5 oz) regular size peanut butter cups, unwrapped and coarsely chopped
With the back of a spoon, mix together cake crumbles with ingredients until a thick
“dough” consistency forms, making it easy to shape into a cake bite.
Shape cake bites, evenly sized using a small cookie scoop and cool for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator, or 20 minutes in the freezer. Dip into dark melting chocolate. Drizzle with melted chocolate and or chopped peanuts.
