German Chocolate Cake Balls


German Chocolate Cake Balls
This is a really simple recipe. I used a boxed cake mix and store bought frosting, but it can be made from scratch too.
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 1/3 cups Water
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
3 Eggs
1 container Coconut Pecan Frosting
1 bag Milk Chocolate Chips

Follow the directions on the box for the cake and make it as directed. I used a 13 x 9 inch sheet pan. 
Let the cake cool then crumble it into a bowl; mix in the container of frosting. Roll into balls about the size of a walnut and place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.Put them into the freezer for about 20 minutes. 

While they are cooling, get a double boiler going and melt the chocolate chips. 

Then just roll the cake balls around in the chocolate and coat them evenly all over. Line them up on waxed paper and let them harden.


  1. I'm one of the few non-chocolate fans out there, but I bet these are a hit with most people! They're very attractive--love that last photo especially.

  2. When are you going to update again Mr Omnivore?
