I am wanting to make little hockey pucks for a party I am having and I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for the chocolate you can heat and pour and it sets kind of hard again. You know like the kind they put on soft serve icecream that they dip and then it hardens??

I think if you're going to use a mold why not use chocolate melts

Hmmmmmmm....I don't have a mold. haha. I was just thinking about pouring the chocolate over each mini cake. and letting it set. Would that work? Would candy melts work for that?

I don't see why they won't work. Just make sure your cakes are way smooth as you will see every nook and cranny.

You don't need a recipe. Just melt you candy melts & pour over the cakes OR you can dip them in.
To dip them spear them on the sides w/a bamboo stick or long toothpick (I'd use 2 - one on each side since cakes are rather big for dipping); lower them into a deep bowl of melted chocolate; set them on a cooling rack & pull out the toothpicks. They also could be put on wax paper instead of the rack.
