  • 1 9 x 13 pan of chocolate brownies or German Chocolate cake
  • 1 16 oz can coconut pecan frosting or homemade if you are ambitious
  • dipping chocolate
  • shredded coconut for garnish optional


  • You can either bake a cake or a pan of brownies from scratch or out of a box then let them cool. Or you can buy a pan of brownies or cake already made.If you ask me this is a great time to take a shortcut and buy them already made. I would recommend using a more cake type brownie than a fudgy brownie.
  • Using a mixer beat cake until it is crumbly.
  • Add can of frosting and mix until combined. Mixture should be sticky.
  • Using a cookie scoop drop balls onto parchment lined baking sheet. Let balls set in the freezer for about 10 minutes so they firm up just a bit. Then roll balls shaping them into pretty little bites.
  • Melt dipping chocolate over a double broiler or in the microwave (I use the microwave and melt chocolate for 30 seconds then stir amd repeat until it's completely smooth).
  • Dip balls into chocolate and set back on baking sheet to completely set. If you want you can sprinkle a little extra coconut over the tops of the balls!
