Coconut Cake Balls

A ridiculously simple recipe that I made for a cookie swap this past weekend.

Ingredients:
1 box white cake mix
Ingredients called for on the box
14 oz. bag sweetened, shredded coconut
1 container cream cheese frosting
Dark chocolate melts
Extra shredded coconut

Directions:
Bake the cake according to directions on the box.
Once cake is cooled, break it up into a large bowl, add coconut and frosting and mix thoroughly until doughy.
On a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, roll out balls of the dough.
(Grease your hands, scoop a ball of dough with a cookie scoop, and roll until smooth between hands).
Freeze the cake balls for one hour.
Melt the chocolate and dip the cake balls half way into the chocolate and then dip in shredded coconut.
Keep refrigerated until served.
Recipe yields over 5 dozen.
