Want to make cake pops, but not with added frosting. Want cake crumbs and melted chocolate to make them more stable & less sweet. So. Cake is crumbled. Melted chocolate is added & cake pops formed.

Anyone have a recipe/ ideas? Know if anyone can answer this question, the CC community can. Thanks in advance.

AI sometimes make cake balls for my husband this way (gosh that sounds terrible!)

No recipe, just crumbled choc mud cake with "enough" melted dark choc to hold it together. A bi richer than reg cake pops but also less sweet. He loves them.

I make mostly only cake pops, so I follow a lot of blogs, books, articles, etc.  A lot of the professional type poppers don't add anything to their crumbled cake.  They mix it in a food processor or standing mixer until a dough forms.  From what I've read it's easier to get it to the consistency you want if you mix it when the cake is warm because the steam makes it bind together easier. 

This isn't my method, but thought I would share what I've read.
