Cake Balls

Last night we went to see our friends’ Matt and Lisa’s new (super cool) townhouse! It has some awesome features and great design. I’m very impressed that in 5 days they are pretty much unpacked and well organized! They were even organized enough to pick out paint colors ahead of time, so that all the rooms/halls were painted before they moved in.

Anyway, as part of their house-warming gift (& Olympic viewing snack) we tried out a new recipe….cakeballs. It was pretty easy (& really messy) to make, but a little time consuming due to “chilling time”. The batch made a ton of balls, and while they aren’t as pretty as the original- they tasted good. Although next time I won’t use chocolate cake- I thought the vanilla icing would counter act some of the chocolate….not so much. It was like eating a moist triple chocolate brownie. I already have some possible combinations in mind for next time : )

My handy photographer captured some of the process….

They look really yummy! Chester would like to try a kibble ball some time soon though.
