Lime in the Coconut Cake Balls

“Being a nurse means you carry immense responsibilty with little authority. You step into people’s lives and make a difference. Some bless you, some curse you. You see people at their worst, their best. You see life begin, end, and everything in between. You see poeple’s capacity for love, courage, and endurance.” ~ anonymous

I made these treats to bring into a staff meeting at work today in honor of nurse’s week 5/6-5/12. I am truely blessed to work with such a great group of kind, caring nurses. Love ya 4 Harmony!!
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 lime
3/4 c. coconut milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. flour
2/3 c. premaid cake icing

Cream the butter and sugar, add in the eggs and juice of lime. In a seperate bowl combine baking powder, salt, and flour. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients alternating with the coconut milk. Pour into a 13X9 inch pan and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Let cake cool completely. Crumble cake into very fine peices either with your hands or food processor. Mix 2/3 c. premaid cake icing with the cake crumbs until it is well combined. Next, form the mixture into ping-pong size balls. Let them chill in the fridge for about an hour. In the meantime, melt the white chocolate chips either in the microwave or with a double boiler. Dip the cake balls in the white chocolate and sprinkle with coconut flakes and lime zest.
