A breakdown of what I did: made a cake out of boxed cake mix, used about 3/4 of a can of frosting (next time I'll use a smidge less because they were slightly gooey). Once the cake was baked and cooled I mixed in the frosting and made this pretty piece of work:
|Reminds me of the mudpies from the movie Drop Dead Fred. hehe|
I then rolled them into balls and put it into the freezer for a few hours.
Here is where I went wrong:
I read from other people that you may have to microwave the chocolate a few times because the frozen balls might cause it to harden.
I decided to melt the chocolate using a double boiler. I think I got the melted chocolate too hot because it started to melt the chocolate balls a little bit turning my white chocolate brown. But, when I tried to lower the heat it seemed like the melted chocolate didn't look smooth.
A few of them came out okay:
After I noticed the chocolate balls were melting into the white chocolate I turned down the heat a little bit and that's when I got the really messed up looking ones in the back.
I'll try again tomorrow. I'll try heating the chocolate up in the microwave instead and see if I can control the temperature a little bit better. Wish me luck!
