Cake Balls rolled in cocoa pecans
- 1 box yellow cake mix, prepared as directed
- 1 container buttercream icing
- 1 C. pecans
- 2 T cocoa powder
Prepare the cake per the package instructions. Cool completely. Once cooled cut the cake up and transfer into a large bowl. Crumble the cake with your clean hands and then add the complete container of buttercream icing. Mix well until the frosting is completely incorporated into the cake. Place the bowl into the refrigerator for an hour to cool. Roll cake mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
In a food processor, process the pecans until fine. Gently mix in the cocoa power and put into a pie plate. Roll each cake ball through the pecan cocoa powder to coat and place back onto the parchment lined cookie sheet.
Keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve. Store in an air tight container. Use your imagination to create different coatings such as coconut, white or milk chocolate or sprinkles.
