2. While the cake is cooking, crush up those peanut butter cups and Kit-Kats.
3. While the cake is cooling, melt your plain chocolate bars.
4. Once it is cooked and cooled, place the cake in a large mixing bowl and start smushing and crumbling the cake.

5. While you’re doing this, add the can of frosting AND the crushed peanut butter cups and thoroughly mix.
6. Time to make the balls. Strive for them to be about 1 ½ inch and uniform. (If you make them bigger then that’s your own experiment) **TIP: If they look a little squishy, pop them into the fridge or freezer for a bit until they firm up!**
7. Line a large plate or pan with the wax paper or foil.
8. Stab your cake balls and dip them into the melted chocolate and roll them into the crushed Kit-Kats. Place them on the lined plate.

9. You can let them harden there on the counter or chill them until they are served.
