German Chocolate Cake Balls
German Chocolate Cake Balls are just another addition to my long list of German Chocolate favorites.  If you have not made cake balls before, this recipe is a good one to start with.  Typically, you can make them with cake mixes, canned frosting and dipping chocolate.  How easy is that?  Only 3 ingredients!

Valentines is just around the corner, and these would be a wonderful treat.   These are fun to make with your children and Grandchildren like I did.  We had so much fun making them and dipping them was the best.  For some more wonderful Valentine treats look to the right on the sidebar.

German Chocolate Cake Balls 

1 (15.25 oz) package Pillsbury German Chocolate Mix (including all the ingredients to make the cake)
1 (16 oz) tub Pillsbury Pecan Coconut Frosting
1 (24 oz) block Chocolate Almond Bark

Bake cake mix according to package directions.  Cool on a wire rack until cool to the touch.

In a bowl of an electric mix, crumble baked cake.  Add 1/2 of the tub of frosting.   Using the paddle attachment, all together until blended.

Using a medium scoop to form cake mixture into balls.  Roll into 1" balls and place on a cookie sheet.

After all the cake mixture has been rolled into balls, place the sheet pan in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

While cake balls are in the refrigerator, melt chocolate according to package directions.

Dipp chilled cake balls in the melted chocolate using a fork.   Tap the fork against the bowl to release excess chocolate and place on a lined sheet pan to harden.
