OMG!!! Tips: I made the cake in a 9x13 pan, inverted it onto a wire rack to cool and cut it into slices to cool faster:about 30 min. I put the cake in a large metal bowl and used my hand mixer to "crumb" the cake, then mixed in frosting and some chopped pecans/ about 1/2 cup. with the mixer, I sat it in the fridge for exactly 2 hours. For coating: I used Wilton's candy melts, I added about 1 tbsp. evaporated milk (per 1/3 bag) to make it extra creamy, microwaved it for 1 min 20 sec. after I had rolled cake into balls I dipped each ball coating only half of the ball- I let it rest on waxed paper on the uncoated side (or leaning close to it) and waited for them to dry, they were all dry by the time I finished the first "dip" on the last ball I had rolled. I then went through and while holding the dry chocolate coated side dipped the uncoated side into the chocolate. This allowed the balls to not have any holes from the toothpicks or lost balls in the coating bowl!!! I got RAVE reviews when I brought them to a party - I will be making all different versions of these and boxing them as gifts!!!!! Great idea!
