Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I've had cake balls before, but never with a German chocolate cake. I loved it! The coconut pecan frosting mixed with the cake makes for a really moist and rich cake ball. The white chocolate coating on the outside makes this stand out. The white chocolate/chocolate flavor combination is a great change from the traditional chocolate coating.

Note: The cake is very moist. We recommend keeping them in the fridge and only taking out a few at a time while coating. If they become room temperature, they are hard to work with.
