Chocolate Covered Cake on a Stick

[Photographs and original illustrations: Cakespy]

What dessert wouldn't taste great covered in chocolate and put on a stick? Instead of coming up with an answer (because really, that was a rhetorical question) why not set up a double boiler and set yourself to melting some chocolate?

Note: Since I was feeling fancy, I used slices of Dobos Torte, but really, any type of cake would work. See for yourself how enrobing a cake slice in chocolate brings it to new indulgent heights, and yet how eating it off of a stick somehow keeps the experience playful.
