Coconut Pecan Snowball Cakes | Have lots of fun at your Christmas party and create the ultimate snowball fight! Make these yummy snowball shaped cakes, full of coconut and pecans; then rolled in a cream cheese frosting and coconut. Just the right amount of sweetness and super easy to make!
I found small buckets in the dollar section at Target. Add three to each bucket and place on your guests plates. You’ve already got dessert plated and served! OR….wrap the whole thing bucket and all for the BEST party favor EVER!
My favorite thing about these snowball cakes is that they start with a cake mix and pudding mix! Yet with all the other flavors added you’re guests will never know that you didn’t make them from scratch.
I have a great tip I just learned from my friend Karyn at Pint Sized Baker and I’m going to share it with you! If you refrigerate your cooled baked cake and wait to make the snowballs until the cake is ice cold…you don’t have to add frosting to the cake! I love this because adding frosting sometimes makes cake way too sweet.
Let’s get busy making some Snowballs! ♥
Press the cake into 1 1/2-inch balls.
Heat the frosting, add a small amount of water, roll the cake in the frosting.
Then roll the cake in the coconut.
Place on a lined cookie sheet and refrigerate until the frosting has hardened.
