I like mixing a little pudding (probably ~10 ounces) in with the cake instead of frosting. Frosting makes the cake way too sweet, and the pudding gives the cake a remarkably moist, gooey consistency reminiscent of cookie dough but with a little more firmness. After dipping the cake balls in the chocolate, I like to remove the stick and add a dollop of melted chocolate on top of the ball with a spoon so the ball is completely encased in chocolate.

I usually use melted chocolated chips - but, can't wait to try the confectioner's coating!

I've also learned that using really warm cake gets mushy....actually that keeps its moist as a ball, tool. I also used hard choc when I made it with frosting and it became sticky instead of solid like the first time I'd made them. Actually, melting the hard cooking chocolate was even better!!!

Carol: do NOT use the microwave for melting the chocolates...An average box of cake mix should yeild approx 80 cake balls. To continuously re-melt chocolate in the microwave, will turn the chocolate into garbage! The Easiest way to melt your chocolate (and this can be done for several colors at a time if you want to) is: take a frying pan (size depends on how many colors you are melting)fill it 2/3's full with water. Place on low flame. Put ceramic tea cups in the fry pan. Put chocolate melts into cups and let melt slowly. Keep watch on your water level as you will have to add more. I have several cups that are Only used for this purpose, so once I'm done dipping and the cup cools down, I just wrap it with plastic wrap till needed again. See my post above for doing the cake balls correctly... Hope this helps. AND, ladies...please be advised that these cakeballs are NOT something that can be thrown together in half an hours time. It will take you quite a bit of time to do this right...b

heidird: Cakeballs are an old southern treat. This video does NOT do it correctly! #1 and most important: Let cake COOL completely before crumbling otherwise you end up with a ball of Mush to work with! #2 you do NOT need the whole can of frosting! 3/4's of it is more than enough otherwise it is mushy and too difficult to work with. And, once you have rolled the balls (I use my hands, which is the Best way to get them Round) place the balls on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and then FREEZE for approx 20 min. cover with plastic wrap before placing in freezer. When they are firm, take them and put them in Fridge. Work with a few at a time for dipping, otherwise they will get warm and difficult to work with. #3 when you melt your candy melts for dipping, temper them with Crisco (do NOT use no name/store brands, use crisco). Add 1/2 tsp at a time and mix well until the candy melt consistency is loose but not watery. I plop mine one at a time into the melted coating, roll it around with a t
