I saw these little guys on the Kraft website the other day and decided to make them for a Halloween party we’re attending on Saturday afternoon.
I didn’t use the Kraft recipe, but one I already had, to make them super-chocolatey.
The coconut dying didn’t go quite as well as I had hoped, and my white chocolate seized up on me, so I didn’t get to do the little ghosts…but I’m going to try again before the party and will hopefully have better pictures to show soon.
1 Batch of your favorite Chocolate Cake (homemade or box)
1 Batch of your favorite Chocolate Frosting (homemade or canned)
1 12oz. Bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
8oz. Sweetened Coconut, dyed orange
Bake cake in a 13×9 pan and allow to cool completely. Break up into small pieces and mix with the frosting. Set in fridge for at least 2 hours to set up.
Remove from fridge and make small balls out of the mixture – around 1 1/2t. each – and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
Move your cake balls to the freezer to set up again while you melt the chocolate.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler, making sure the water isn’t touching the bottom of the bowl of chocolate.
Remove cake balls from the freezer, dip in chocolate (one at a time) and coat in dyed coconut (if you want).
Allow to harden – overnight in the fridge is best.
Husband Rating – 4.5 out of 5 – “I don’t care how they look, they taste great! The only reason this isn’t a 5 is b/c I like Bella’s brownie truffles better”
Here’s my second try – the coconut dying went better (note to self, use liquid dye, not gel). But, the white chocolate still gave me a little bit of a hassle. Oh well. Better luck next time.
