baking is science for hungry people - cake pops

Isn’t it nice when you stop by a friend’s house on a Sunday afternoon and they pop open a bottle of wine and start doing this?

The lady that runs Jumbo Empanadas and I are old friends back from my county days. She has always been a go-to for ridiculously delicious food, which is a quality I deeply admire in a friend.

By the time I found my way to her house, google maps I wag my finger at you for failing on walking directions, she had already followed The Kitchn’s directions and baked a cake then mashed it up with some cream cheese frosting. My job was to help roll the cake into chocolate balls. It was messy. It was delicious.

More wine while the cake firms up in the freezer … then, time to dip them in melted chocolate. Did I mention how great it is to have a friend that does this sort of thing for fun?

God, they were delicious.

I made those for my brother and sister for Christmas. I made some with a cheesecake (which was incredibly messy) and a chocolate cake. I put half a 2 bite brownie in the middle of them, they were super chocolatey.

That sounds so very wow.
