Carrot Cake Balls

In less than 2 months my mom will turn the big 6-0! I cannot believe it! I've known her almost 4 decades now - haha. I was born when she was 33. So I'm trying to think of a good thing to make her for birthday celebration. She loves carrot cake. Three years I made carrot cake, one year I made carrot oat cookies and this year I am planning to make carrot cake balls. But I of course have to a taste tester before I serve it at the party. Here's the recipe. (Not really healthy, but it's a 60th party, sometimes you got to live a little!)

Carrot Cake Balls
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup of veg oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. of ground cinnamon (good for burning fat)
2 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. of vanilla
4 organic eggs
2 4oz. jars of carrot baby food - 100% natural
1/2 cup of grated carrots

1. mix all dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking soda)
2. then mix the oils, eggs and vanilla
3. mix the wet with the dry and then add in the baby food and carrots
4. mix well and pour batter into your lightly greased and floured (whole wheat) pans
5. bake in oven at 350* for 30-40 minutes (use tooth pick to test if it is done)
6. Let it cool for about 45 minutes.
7. Add about 2 large scoops of cream cheese frosting to a bowl
8. then add the carrot cake and crumble it up and mix well with cream cheese frosting
9. form 3 inch balls and place down on parchment paper
10. once you're done with the batch put in fridge to let harder

Place tooth pics in and serve!

Great way to serve dessert at party. I plan to make chocolate cake with peanut butter as well.
