Peanut Butter Cake Balls

Annamaria Settanni McDonald Recipe

By Annamaria Settanni McDonald ArtByASM

What is great about this recipe is that you can use Yellow Cake instead of Chocolate Cake. This allows the Peanut Butter to really come through when using the yellow cake. I leave it up to the chocolate outside layer to bring in the chocolate flavor. But if you'd like, you can use chocolate cake.
