Is there anything other than melted choc/almond bark to coat cake balls with? I was thinking of rolling them in chopped peanuts or coconut, but would they then dry out too easily? Would powdered sugar or cocoa work?

I was also wondering what other people cover cake balls with. I've always used almond bark but I was thinking about using ganache.

I don't know if the chopped peanuts or coconut would work without first dipping it into something wet (like chocolate). I know when I make my cake balls, the balls (before being dipped aren't really that moist so I don't know if anything would really stick to them.

Doesn't hurt to try it though.

Mine are usually pretty sticky, but I probably put too much frosting in.

I put just a TINY bit of icing...like a T or two per cake mix.... just enough to help them hold together....but if your cake is moist.. they really don't even need the icing.

I know of the coolest little tool for dipping them. It's a swirl dipper fork. AWESOME...love that little thing!
