Adventures in Cooking: Peanut Butter Cake balls

YUM
After making cake balls, I decided to try to peanut butter cake balls after having an almost reglious experience while eating Holy Cacao's version.  Theirs are still better, but these don't suck too bad.


Peanut Butter "Cake" Balls

Package of Nutter Butters
8oz bar of cream cheese, softened
Chocolate or candy coating
Lots of free time

Smush the Nutter Butters to smithereens.  I use a mini food processor, but you could put them in a Ziploc and smush them with a hammer or meat tenderizer.  Mix in the cream cheese until smooth-ish.  Pop in the fridge to harden, at least an hour.

Using a cookie scoop or other scooping device, scoop into balls onto a cookie sheet with wax paper.  Put in the freezer to harden, at least 15 min.

While freezing, melt chocolate or candy coating.  Dip balls into chocolate.  Immediately top with sprinkles, or sea salt (which tastes freaking awesome!)  Pop back into freezer to harden candy coating (at least 15 min).  Attempt to share with others and decide you don't actually like any other people enough to share.
