    In large bowl, beat sugar and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, just until blended. Beat in liqueur and coffee mixture. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk, beating just until blended after each addition. Pour into pan.

    Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. With fingers, crumble cake into large bowl. Add 1/2 cup of the chocolate frosting; mix well with spoon. Roll cake mixture into 1-inch balls; place on cookie sheet. Freeze about 30 minutes or until firm; when firm, transfer to refrigerator.

Poke opposite end of stick into foam block. Let stand until set.
