I love German chocolate cake, so I thought I would make German chocolate cake balls. They were so easy and so delicious! I am definitely making some more for Christmas this year because everyone loved them.
You will need the following:
1- box of German chocolate cake mix AND the ingredients the cake calls for usually 3 eggs, 1/3 cup oil and 1 cup water
1- tub of your favorite coconut pecan icing
2- 12 ounce bags of chocolate chips, I used semi sweet chips but you can use your favorite
Bake the cake according to the directions on the back of the box. After it cools completely put the cake in a large bowl and crumble. Once cake has been crumbled add the whole tub of coconut pecan icing and mix well. Roll cake and icing mixture into 1 inch balls, makes approximately 50 balls. Put the cake balls on wax paper on a pan and put in the refrigerator for 30 min or freezer for 10 minutes to cool before dipping in chocolate. Melt the chocolate chips following the instructions on the package, or microwave on medium power for 15 seconds at a time, stirring well in between. You can place a couple balls at a time into your melted chocolate if the bowl is large enough. Make sure each cake ball is covered completely in chocolate. Then lift out the cake ball with a spoon, try to not stir the ball in the chocolate or you may get cake crumbles in the chocolate. Tap the spoon on the bowl to try and remove any excess chocolate. Place cake ball on wax paper and let chocolate cool.
Are 50 cake balls too much? You can always freeze half of the cake in a freezer bag and save yourself some time later.
