How do you cover the cake balls with chocolate melted candy making it smooth and thin with shape and no sticky, thick and amorpho????
It looks so easy in the cake balls recipe but when we arrive to the chocolate everything is crazy and messy.

Once I shape the cake balls, I pop them into the freezer or fridge to harden and solidify. Then I take a skewer or dipping fork (make your own with a plastic fork with the middle two tines broken out). I dip, let excess drip then place on wax paper.

Again I will pop this tray into the refrigerator. once it comes out , I will drizzle or decorate. I have some christmas cake balls in my pics. I had no problems. I also did some halloween cake ball ghosts (more of a cake blob than a cake ball)

Good Dipping......

thank you so much but what happens is that my chocolate is too thick that is very dificult to cover them even when I placed them already in the freezer and gets messy and I don't know how to make it more liquid

If your chocolate is too thick, you can add some paramount crystals to thin it out.

Or a wee bit of veg shortening.

PS Your chocolate is probably too hot.

Hi again
I made the pumpkin chocolate cake balls again, I got the idea from the original in this site.And finally doesn't look so bad, with the tiny winny crisco, everything worked so differently and so good, I am very happy and my children more, so this week we have 4 little monkeys jumping on the sofa because of the chocolate injecction.... icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gificon_lol.gif
