Hi there I see all the postings and the "how to" on cake balls...I was wondering if anyone has ever made them out of brownies? I saw them done on a website, and I have a bride that is interested in me making them.....Since I haven't even made cake balls...only cakes, would love any suggestions, tips, etc...thanks so much!!!

ive done it. And when I made them, they were moist enough not to use a binder!

I've never made cake balls, I only use brownies. I found the best way was to put the cooled brownies in the food processor and pulverize to crumbs. There can be some lumps, that's fine. As -Sweetheart- said, you won't need a binder; just squish them into shape. I've also made the Santa hats & Christmas trees from Bakerella's website using brownies.

I did these for a bridal shower.

All a brownie is, is a choc cake without the leavener.

I do mostly all brownie balls, with a few oreo balls thrown in. I don't like the texture of the cake balls with the binder so the brownies work out perfect.

Sooo Yummy!

Do you use a binder for the oreo balls or is the cream inside of them enough? Mmmmm...sounds good!

OMG those look amazing!!! So beautiful! I've never made brownie balls but I have made a TON of the cake balls, and every one loves them. I'd like to try out the brownie balls. Oh these would be perfect fo V-Day.

Barbaranne how did you coat them so perfectly? Mine always come out somewhat messy.

Thanks,
Kathi

a package of cream cheese is a great binder for the oreo cookie balls.

heycake Posted 11 Feb 2010 , 4:44pm

For the oreo balls I add some cream cheese, but only a little. I just add a Tbsp. or two at a time until the mixture just starts to stick together( I make the mixture in my food processor). However, the brownies are still my fave because if it's a fudgy brownie you don't anything to bind it together.
