Less-than-perfect cake truffles

This past weekend I had my first foray into the trendy world of cake pops/cake truffles. I was meeting up with some friends that I don’t see very often, and figure they would be excellent test subjects. I Google-ed “mocha cake pops” and tried the first recipie that came up: http://thekitchenismyplayground.blogspot.com/2011/08/mocha-cake-ball-truffles.html

Of course I didn’t want to make a special trip tout to get candy melts, and I fiugred that I would just make a dark-chocolate ganache instead…. big mistake. The mixture was way too thick to cover the truffles easily, mostly creating a goopy mess.

I have very nice friends who praised my attempts, and flavor wise they were very good, but in the future I will make the extra trip for candy melts to easy the coating process.
