Coconut Cake Balls


Check out my guest post over at beautiful Alaina's blog: Sweetness of Life.

I wrote about a pretty sweet recipe I accidentally created.

It includes coconut butter, cake mix, and chocolate.

Interested yet?

No?



How 'bout now?

Go check it out! :)  And while you're there, look at all of Alaina's delicious recipes!!

P.S. If you haven't had coconut butter before.. you have to try it.  It's amazing!!


You can buy it here.  Or make your own by processing shredded unsweetened coconut in a food processor until creamy.

  18. Oh and by the way, I love that you mix the cake with the coconut butter rather than a frosting or syrup. I have got to try that!
