Brownie Meatballs with Frosting Spaghetti #SundaySupper

Meatball Brownies with Frosting Spaghetti

When I saw this Sunday Supper theme of meatballs, I had no idea what to make.  I’m not a fan of traditional meatballs because I don’t like tomato sauce.  I haven’t liked it since I was born.  Not on pizza.  Not on pasta.  I was a fan of a white pizza before it was cool.

Sure a riff on meatballs crossed my mind, but then I thought about dessert.  And how much I wanted to bake some brownies.  And how I wanted to make something that was fun.  Something that allowed my inner child to come out and forget about the pressure and stress of life.

So I made meatballs.  With brownies.  And spaghetti.  With frosting.  And sauce.  With cherries.

Even if you like regular meatballs, you have to admit dessert meatballs sound pretty crazy awesome. And they really do look a lot like meatballs, but they don’t taste like them.

I started with the brownies I shared earlier in the week, but feel free to use your favorite brownie recipe.  One with frosting is going to work the best to make sure the meatballs stick together.  Think of the frosting as the egg and breadcrumbs.

Once all my meatballs were rolled, I piped frosting onto my plate.  I did use store bought frosting just because I needed so much, but feel free to make your own buttercream.  I placed the meatballs on the spaghetti and topped them with the cherry sauce.  Make sure everything is cooled before assembly … or the noodles will melt!

The brownies are great on their own, but with the frosting and cherries, they are even better.  The flavors blend well with the hint of tartness from the cherries really making the whole dish sing.  Plus, this is fun to make and eat.  And life should be a lot more fun.

Brownie Meatballs with Frosting Spaghetti #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 15 meatballs

Ingredients

½ recipe Fudgy Frosted Brownies, or your favorite brownies

1 can vanilla frosting

2 cups pitted cherries, fresh or frozen

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions

Make the cherry sauce. In a small saucepan, combine cherries, sugar, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes, until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

Crumble the brownies up and roll them into golf ball sized balls. I did this while they were warm, but I don’t know if that matters. Allow to rest while you pipe the spaghetti.

Place the frosting into a piping bag or zipper bag with the very tip cut off. Pipe squiggles all over a plate. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Place the meatballs on the frosting. Top with the cherry sauce.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
