I used to get these at a bakery in San Francisco.  They were chocolate cake and rum and something creamy dipped in milk chocolate and jimmies, and about 3" across.  Delicious and deadly.  Anybody have a recipe?  SF is about 2000 miles away, don't think I'll ever get back to that bakery...

try something like the cake balls on here.
& mix in rum  or a rum sauce.

mmmm, that looks like something very similar, and it gives me a place to start.  Thank you for the link to Bakerella!

this is what we used to do at the bakery:

take all your chocolate cake, or cake scraps and break it up in a mixer.  add some ganache in until it's fudgy and awesome, then add rum and chocolate chips.  the mixture is very soft, so use a portion scoop (ice cream scoop) and put them on a baking tray, then freeze or refrigerate.

roll the rum balls in more ganache, then in your jimmies, and put them back on the tray to set.

ganache:
750g dark chocolate
500ml heavy cream

boil the cream in a pot then pour over chopped chocolate/chocolate pieces (standing by in a bowl) and stir until it all comes together.  if you wanted it a little more fluid, you could add a little more cream

thanks, hOp, that sounds exactly like what I used to get. 

Now to experiment and gain a bunch of weight...
