  • ISO Cookie recipe

    I have no idea what these are called. It is a ball, the inside is like a brownie or chocolate cake. The outside is rolled in coconut. Anyone know what these are called or have a recipe? thanks

    I think they may be called cake balls, but I'm not sure

      Re: ISO Cookie recipe


      • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
      • 1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting ( I used Duncan Hines..not whipped)
      • 1 (16 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating or almond bark (many people said more than 16oz is needed)

      1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl (into tiny crumbs) and stir in the frosting until well blended.
      2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water,(or a double boiler) stirring occasionally until smooth.
      3. Use a melon ball or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for several minutes to make dipping easier. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

      NOTE: This recipe is very versatile and heavily addictive. You can mix and match cake and icing flavors as well as the chocolate coatings. If you want to go the extra mile, cake balls can be rolled in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc. or double dipped in white and dark chocolates. Chocolate confectioners' coating is also called Almond Bark in some stores. If the balls are not frozen/cold, your finished product will not have a smooth coating. It will be lumpy and full of crumbs. These are easy enough that someone who doesn't cook can make them without difficulty. Many people commented that they taste like donut holes, only better.

          Hi sunny!
          I was looking through my cookie cookbooks over the weekend to try and help you. I couldn't find anything close. Well I take that back..I did see some tassies that may be close,but they weren't cake or brownie like in the middle.
          Was the cookie ball hard or soft? Where did you try it at?
          I wonder if its some kind of no bake type thing.

            Re: ISO Cookie recipe

            I've been looking high and low for this. Most of the ones I found was for cake mix and canned frosting...which makes it too soft (and rich) to just roll in coconut. Dipping in chocolate is what held those together.
            Now, I did find a brownie truffle. Take baked brownies, cut in small squares, roll squares into a ball, then cover in powdered chocolate. Coconut would need something to make it stick.
            I hope someone can figure this out. they do sound good.

              Thank you guys for looking! I really appreciate it! I wish I at least knew what they are called since that would make googling for a recipe so much easier! Gosh, even if I would've taken a picture of one, it would've helped.

              They were definitely baked. The inside was kind of soft like a brownie. The coconut was a little crisp on the outside from baking. Hmm, truffles are an interesting idea.

              I had these at some cousins' anniversary party. I think some distant cousins made the cookies. I will have to ask around to see if anyone knows what they are called or has a recipe for them. If I find a recipe I will make sure to post it for you guys to try

                You know, it may just be a dry cookie dough (one that doesn't spread), rolled in coconut and baked.
