I have no clue where to post this-it thought there was a cooking section somewhere but I can't fine it?
Anyway - I am embarking on cake-pop making for DD birthday and I was after some tips from other Aussie mums. Nearly everything I can find are from the US and they mention all these things that we don't have here.
So-any tips? I made some already and the biggest issue was that the chocolate was too think - I used Nestle cooking chocolate. Anyway - any tips would be most welcome! I should I am using a cake-pop maker not making them from scratch and I am pretty happy with it.

If you use some oil or butter in the melted chocolate it will help thin it out to make it easier to coat the cake balls.

I agree a little bit of butter in the chocolate will help keep it smooth. I've also added a ting bit if cream too
I also kept my chocolate over low simmering water to keep it warm and stop it hardening between pops. I have also heard of people putting the chocolate in a slow cooker.
I also found if I was not careful with my cake pop machine I dried the pops out alot. I made the mistake of trying to decorate and cook at once - not a good idea.
As for chocolate a normally use the Cadbury cooking blocks. I find them the best.
The hardest thing was colouring the white chocolate as it always seems to seize. I found whisking it alot and adding a little milk or cream helps
