new year cake balls

I think I'm finally getting the hang of this candy-coating. I made these for a New Year's Eve dinner with friends and I was pretty happy with how they turned out. The candy coating came out smoother by resting the cake ball on a teaspoon, and with another spoon pouring the melted chocolate on top. Tapping the teaspoon on the side of a bowl, the candy became coated evenly on all sides. I ended up coating the last few balls in cocoa because I ran out of time, but I think I like the contrast.
