Nellie's notes for this recipe:
My sister gave me this recipe and the first time I made it every one was crazy about it. You can use different cake mix and frosting to make different type of balls. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting. Chocolate with chocolate frosting. Lemon with lemon frosting. What ever flavors your like.
Make it Your Way...

Make german chocolate cake as directed on box. Cool. Crumble cake and then add a can of Coconut pecan frosting. Mix well with hands, it will be messy. Roll into walnut size balls. Freeze or chill for 1 hour. It will make about 50 balls
Melt a 12 oz bag of chocolate chips in a double boiler. Add a little paraffin wax to mixture. Dip cake balls into chocolate and let dry on wax paper.
