Making cake balls

Last Saturday we had a party/dance that we were going to and my sister-in-law, Jordan, and I wanted to make cake balls to take.  Feeling pretty confident having made them before, we started.  We decided against putting the balls on sticks, like we did the first time.  We crumbled the cake, made them into balls, froze them for the right amount of time, melted the chocolate, all was well...  Then we tried dropping the balls in the white chocolate (SO, yummy...), picking it up with a spoon and transferring it to the pan.  First off, it took a really long time, and no matter what we did, the balls were not getting totally covered.  After experimenting with a lot of different techniques and wasting a lot of time, we ended up dipping the balls by hand covering it halfway with chocolate, then drizzled melted milk chocolate overtop.  I was surprised at how pretty they turned out, even if they didn't look like the "perfect" cake balls.  

Even though the process was stressful, it was fun and the finished product tasted yummy!

Have you ever made cake balls before?  What was your experience like?  Do you have any tips?
