Im making cake balls, and I have no chocolate to melt. Is there a way to use cocoa powder to make chocolate?? semi sweet if possible??

No, you need the chemical properties of chocolate. Cocoa mixed with butter (the substitution in baking) won't set up.

I think brownie balls with white chocolate would be great. I think I want to try that tonight.

I havent made brownie balls yet, but I was thinking of trying it out. How about rolling them in powdered sugar. I think that would be yummy. I actually made p-nut butter brownies last night and dusted them with PS.

What about just rolling them in cocoa powder? I've done it for truffles.
