So I found this recipe a while ago and have been waiting for an occasion to make them. When my friends mentioned doing a Sunday night dinner (a tradition that has been dormant for a while that is hopefully making a comeback) I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try out this recipe and once again, have my friends be my guinea pigs. I even bought a set of these with this recipe specifically in mind. The silicone baking cups made coating the cups in chocolate super easy, they popped out perfectly, plus look how fun they are!
This recipe is very simple as far as the ingredients are concerned, but does have a lot of steps and took up the majority of my Thursday night.
This recipe starts out with the makings for cake balls/pops. I baked a box of Duncan Hines devil's food chocolate cake as directed and allowed it to cool.
|Melty milk chocolate|
|Double coated silicone cups|
|Think of all the things you could fill these with! Mmmm|
Sugar Derby likes to discard the edges of the cake so there are no hard bits. I think I would recommend this as well for a more consistent cake ball mixture.
|Cake ball mixture, doesn't look very appetizing but I promise, it's tasty.|
|All prepped and ready to assemble!|
|Cake balls added and gently pressed into cups.|
|Cake ball with peanut butter on top.|
|Gooey chocolate seeping down into the cracks.|
|Please admire the prefect ridges.|
|Cleaner cross-section, delicious!|
