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.

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...
