almond bark only? (for making cake balls)

making cake balls for my first time ever as a lil' sweet treat for the family..
Is almond bark the only thing to cover them? Or what are some alternatives?

  • Almond bark is the best because of the way it melts and then hardens.
    You can use chocolate chips or baking squares, but those tend to harden before you can get all the balls dipped and covered.

  • Almond bark is almost exactly like candy melts - but I really really prefer candy melts! They coat nicer & smoother and you can thin them with a little shortening if you want/need to. I never use almond bark for cake balls/pops! (Even Bakerella says & uses candy melts!)

  • Chocolate Chips, melt them and cover them & then stick in the fridge to harden
