Detecting encoded C2 Communication

Does anyone have experience detecting C2 communication that is encoded?  I've been working with some malware that communicates back with base64 encoded blobs inside (legit looking) http traffic.  I'd like to be able to decode the base64 text within the traffic so I may write a rule to catch the communication.
