ok, so I love these little guys, however I am having some troubles.
How do you prevent the cracking?
How do you get a smooth finish?
What type chocolate is everyone using?

I have had luck with those "candy melts" which you can buy at the craft store. I don't think they are "real" chocolate but they come in lots of colors and super easy to melt in the microwave and dip the pops. I usually freeze my pops before dipping because the chocolate sets faster and they don't break apart, or at least make sure they are cool.

hi! mine used to crack all the time, too. I stopped freezing them before dipping and the cracking stopped. also, let the dipping chocolate sit for a couple of minutes so it's not so hot when you dip.
it helps to refrigerate the cake/icing mixture for an hour or so before you form it into balls... they stay together a bit better that way.
good luck with your cake balls!
