Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted chocolate or icing and push it into a cake ball. Then, dip the ball into the melted chocolate or icing, allowing any excess to drain back into the bowl before rolling the ball in your choice of decoration (coconut, sprinkles or flaked almonds). Place on a prepared tray to set.
