If you’ve been reading along, you know that these are really called Chocolate Salty Balls, but I’m trying not to be too crude too often. Once in a Bachelorette Party post was enough. Today, we will call these delectables by their civilized name: Salted Chocolate Brownie Balls!
Super easy, super sinful, super yummy.
- Brownie mix (try truffle brownies for a richer flavor or use your favorite cake)
- Cream cheese frosting
- Chocolate or chocolate-flavored candy melts
- Coarse ground salt
Bake your brownies.
I’m not a huge fan of brownies, but truffle brownies are to-die-for! Remember these Truffle Brownie S’More Cake Pops?
Mix in your cream cheese frosting and roll the mixture into balls.
Never made cake balls or cake pops? See my tutorial with lots of beginner tips here.
Coat your brownie balls with candy melts or chocolate.
For a quick and dirty job, use candy melts – they dry quickly and don’t melt as easily as chocolate.
Before the coated balls dry, sprinkle on some coarse ground or flaky salt.
So so good. They go really well with a Sparkling Pomegranate Vodka Shot! I’m sure they also go well with milk, but the next opportunity I have to make them is for Hubby’s 40th birthday party – Curry, Cake & A Keg – so I’m hoping they go really well with beer! (I’m also going to try my hand at these Shiner Bock cupcakes!)
