Spooky Witches' Fingers
Loved these! Very tasty, kids loved them...I dipped mine in chocolate on the side without the almond. It is VERY important to only work with chilled dough!!! Otherwise they will be difficult to work with and spread. The recipe does state to keep the dough chilled and work in small batches. Thanks for a really great recipe! Will definitely make again!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.
This recipe is awesome! I have made them numerous times for my students and family since LTH first posted a picture of these cupcakes! I always top with the chocolate buttercream frosting from the Nestle website, and sometimes I even cheat and use pre-made cookie dough. YUMMY every time! Kids LOVE these! :) Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Cake Balls
I was VERY apprehensive about trying this recipe because I saw so many mixed reviews on it, but I finally gave in and I am so glad!!! I used a red velvet cake mix and dipped them in Merckens milk chocolate wafers that I melted. I went to a couple stores and couldn't find the chocolate bark, and just gave up. Merckens is excellent to use! Here is what you need to do to be successful, and I got these tips from all the other reviewers. You need to take 2 days to make these, they are NOT hard, just time consuming. First, make the cake, then cut off the hard edges that won't crumble and blend. Then mix with 3/4 of a can of frosting. The whole can would be too mushy. Then cover the dough and refrigerate for a few hours. I then used a PC small cookie scoop and make balls with them. I then stuck toothpicks in them and put them in the freezer overnight. I dipped them into the melted chocolate the next morning, pulling the toothpick out and just covering the holes. I worked quickly and did two batches of chocolate so the chocolate would stay melted and not get thick. I also didn't want the balls to start melting and the cake to start crumbling into the chocolate. I am not good enough to decorate as well as some cooks did on here, so I just put some chocolate in a plastic bag, snipped the corner, and put more chocolate lines on the finished balls. They really are not sweet and tasted amazing! My neighbors, coworkers, husband, and 3 children all LOVED them!! Thanks for t
