Foot-cake-balls, that is.
It was at a birthday party two years ago celebrating my friend Liz and me that I first tasted the delicious wonder that is the cake ball (thanks, Susan!). It tastes like cake but it is also ridiculously moist and (better yet) covered in chocolate.
I have to work at the restaurant this year during the Super Bowl, but my husband gets to go to a party so when I was at the grocery store the other day thinking about what treat to pick up for him to take, I found myself in front of the baking chocolate and it hit me: foot-cake-balls! It might be the greatest Super Bowl treat since Doritos. Or the cutest, at least.
There's still time if you want to try the recipe for your own party:
|I left the edge of the cake because it gets a little crusty in the oven and crusties in cake balls are not delicious kinds of surprises (and I had to have something to taste-test).|
|Cake + frosting + Kitchen Aid = this delicious play-dough type mixture, which you can form into balls of all shapes and sizes, as seen below:|
|Once the balls are formed, put them in the freezer for a couple hours or over night|
|And now we have foot-cake-balls!|
|Crunchy chocolate shell with moist chocolate fudge on the inside. So delicious! (Absolutely not nutritious but, hey, it's a party).|
