  1. i tried making these and couldnt understand how to dip the balls in the chocolate without the balls falling apart. can you please add more information.

    i love your blog.

  2. Thanks for your comment! A few things that might have happened. Did the cake balls roll into balls easily or did they crumble? If not you might need a bit more nutella (never a bad thing!) Did you freeze the cake balls for at least thirty minutes before dipping them in chocolate? They really need to harden before dipping otherwise you'll end up with a mess. Also, when I dip my cake balls I take a few out of the freezer at a time, dip then, then take out a few more. Also, my last piece of advice for dipping is to melt double the amount of chocolate so that you can dunk the cake balls in chocolate, and easily use a spoon to fish them out. I've obviously experimented with these a lot!

    Let me know if this works, and if you have any other questions.

    Also, out of curiosity, how did you find my blog? 🙂
