Hi Ya Sweet Bakers! Happy Monday & Happy President’s Day! Today I got cancelled from work today! So I’m catching up on things…..mostly chores at home. The fun things…..lol! Like Laundry, sweeping, mopping…….the fun stuff I look forward to my days off!!! hahaha!! But right now that I have a chance, I wanted to do a short photo tutorial how I did my Cake Balls I did for Valentine’s Day. Something short and sweet.
First off, I use to use Wilton’s Candy Chocolate Melts but sometimes when I attempt to melt the chocolate, it wouldn’t melt the way it should. I would use shortening and still it would harden up. I even bought the Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot and still didn’t melt good! So I saw this chocolate bark at Walmart and I’ve seen some baking blogs that they use this stuff too!! So I thought I give it a try!!
Seriously this Plymouth Pantry Almond Bark is AWESOME!!! I have no problems what so ever when it comes to melting it!!! It’s that good!!! Highly recommend it!! But I’ll keep trying the Wilton’s Candy Melts once in a while, hopefully I’ll have luck! 🙂
So what I do is i cut 4 or 5 pieces of the almond bark and warm it up in microwave in a pyrex dish for 30 seconds. I keep doing this for 1 minute and 30 seconds until it’s really melted.
As you can see below, it’s nice and runny! Perfect for those Cake Balls I made! 😀
Now, what I did next was I took my cake ball and just dropped it in the white chocolate. I rolled it around using a spoon to help me.
To help me pick up the chocolate covered cake ball I used Wilton’s Candy Dipping Fork & spoon.
I gently give small taps while holding the cake ball for the excess chocolate melt to come off. Then I gently lay it down on m baking sheet with parchment paper and right away apply my colorful sprinkles!
Once they’re all ready and dried up, it’s now time to enjoy some delicious Cake Balls!!!
