To get the recipes for the cake and buttercream frosting, refer back to here: Mudslide Cupcakes
Now... bake the mixture into cakes instead of cupcakes (if you don't need all of the cake at once, freeze it until you do)
Next, put the cake in a food processor and pulse into crumbs (forgot to take a pic of this but it should resemble crumby cake...)
Mix in a little bit of frosting at a time b/c you don't want to add too much. Your balls won't stay firm and will fall off the stick and you'll just have lots of problems. With this one cake, I used about 1/4 cup of frosting. Mix it together using your hands... think like you're making meatballs and really get into it. You want the frosting spread evenly throughout the cake. You should have what looks like this when you're done:
Wrap it up in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
Take out of fridge and make your balls... I use a small scoop to form uniform balls..
Meanwhile, melt your chocolate in a double boiler (or one of these handy dandy chocolate melters)
... if you don't have either, follow the directions on the package of chocolate melts for microwave. This works just fine as I've done that too:)
Dip your sticks in the melted chocolate and plunge into the balls:
Happy Cake Popping!!
