I can't get them to stay together the fall apart when i try to dip them in chocolate what i'm i doing wrong i try three different recipes and still no luck if you can Help me thanks
Have you added enough icing to the crumbled cake? Sounds like they might be too dry to hold their shape.
Don't use too much icing or they will be mushy.
They best thing to do is freeze them before dipping. THey are very fragile if you don't.
Are you refrigerating or freezing your truffles before dipping them in chocolate? Doing that should solve your problem.
Also, is your chocolate too hot? It should not be too hot. That creates problems too.
Hope this helps.
I semi-freeze mine and also always thin my chocolate a bit with shortening so that I can spoon it around the cakeball more easily. They really need as fast and as gentle of handling as possible.
don't dip them in melted chocolte if they are frozen otherwise the chocolate could crack. What works for me is if they are previously frozen and then put in the refrigerator for a few hours before dipping. There's a fine line between frozen and refrigerated pops and if they are out of the fridge too long they will slide off the stick. Good luck!
