Buy a thinly-sliced baumkuchen cake, and cut it into 5 pieces. It is delicious!
Blend it up in a food processor, add in the cream cheese.... Or use a grater to break it up, and mix it together with softened cream cheese.
Pulse the food processor several times until it has mixed together.
Roll it up into 10-12 balls, and let them harden for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
Put the shaved chocolate into a mug, submerge in hot water, and add in olive oil. Make sure the water does not enter the cup.
Dip the end of a stick into a bit of the the chocolate, and stick it about halfway into a cake ball.
Coat it evenly in chocolate, shake off the excess, and line up on a sheet of cooking paper to cool and harden.
Lastly, draw on the faces with icing, and they are done. You can also draw the face with chocolate. Store-bought chocolate decoration pens are difficult to use, so I suggest using a pastry bag.
Story Behind this Recipe
Last year I made The Joker decorations, but this year I decided to challenge myself by making sweets! Individually baking each cake ball is too much of a pain, so when I tried using store-bought baumkuchen, I was able to turn it into a delicious base.
You can also use thick skewers for the sticks. To be honest, paper sticks are difficult to find, unless you buy them online. Once, I thought you might be able to use cotton swab sticks with the cotton ends cut off of them, but I didn't go ahead with that idea since it didn't sound too appetizing.
