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

3 eggs

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.
