Chocolate Rose & Cake Balls

Tonight I decided to make Chocolate Rose Lollipops...they were really easy but I wish I would have bought more red chocolate 'Cos I ran out, which is OK since I also LOST the pretty wrappers that I wanted to use for them. Errrrrrrr!! Paul helped me look for them for a long time, long after I had given up he kept on looking. :) But they never turned up.

My plan was to take these to everyone at work tomorrow, but I guess it will have to wait, which is OK since I'm not sure I like the taste. I added some cherry flavoring to the Red Chocolate & I think I should have left it alone. I think if someone else made it I'd think they were great, maybe I'm too critical with myself.

I also made cake balls, which is something I make quite often. These ones were chocolate cake with butter cream icing mixed with Bailey's Irish Cream. Yummy!

oh no! I'm up late working and trying not to snack. i should not have read your blog - the Lord must be telling me to get to work, because these look so good and I now know this is what I get for checking blogs when i should be working :)
What a fun idea!

I think your husband deliberately hid the wrappers so the lollipops couldn't leave the house. He only pretended to look.

Now, I was inspired after you made these to make them, and mine did NOT turn out like yours! :-) How did you get the chocolate not to spread all over the place when you placed them on the wax paper? Mine didn't come out nearly as clean and smooth! What's your secret?! :-)

The key player in the clean and smooth look is the chocolate I use. I use Merken's, it is 10,000 times better than Wilton's. Also practice, I make them quite often.

I just drop the cake ball in the chocolate and scoop out with a fork shaking off as much excess as possible. If it bulids up on the bottom of the cake ball (on wax paper) I take the fork and scrape around the bottom.

I hope this helps some. Please ask if you have any more questions. :)

They look great! I wonder if we can get red chocolate in the UK?
