Does anyone ever use chocolate molds to make cake balls? I'm just wondering if anyone coats the mold thinly, lets the chocolate harden, press in the cake mixture and then seal the other end with choc? I'm just curious if anyone has done this. I'm concerned if do it this way it will make the coating too thick to bite into? Thanks in advance!!! icon_smile.gif

I haven't done this yet but I was planning on it, that is how I do my truffles because I prefer the symmetrical look versus the hand dipped look.

Would be interested if anyone has tried this yet.

I haven't tried it myself, but recall reading about other CCers who did.

Here is one link; I know there are more.

I tried it once. Way more work. Not doing it again.

Thanks everyone for your replies. It does look like more work...

I guess it would depend on the theme of the cake balls, if you're going for a symmetrical or more organic look...
