Yes, I can see why they're heavily addictive... they're gorgeous! I made them today for my dinner party tomorrow and I made one lemon cake and in half of the cumbs I mixed lemon frosting and the other half I put chocolate with a but of rum (I find it underlines the chocolate flavour and also reminds me a bit of Christmas :-D). While the balls were really easy to make they took me ages! From when I started on the cake mix until I had all the balls covered in chocolate it took me 5 hours! But then, I made quite small balls. From a 500gr cake mix I got 85 balls, which I froze for about 45 min. I found getting the chocolate on smoothly was quite tricky. I found that using a tooth pick to roll them around in the chocolate and then pick them up with the tooth pick was the easiest way. I then transfered the ready iced balls from the tooth pick to a cookie sheet with a fork and then left them to dry. My flatmate is already addicted to them and can't wait for tomorrow ;-) I used white, milk and dark chocolate to coat them and I prefered the milk chocolate ones.
Maybe next time, to cut out on the waiting time, I will use a ready made cake and just mix it up with the frosting and then make the balls.
