Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8×8 baking dish with non stick cooking spray.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.

Combine the beaten eggs, oil, and vanilla and stir into the dry mixture. Stir until the ingredients are moistened. Add the shredded carrots and stir until all ingredients are truly mixed. The batter will be thick.

Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish.

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the baking dish until completely cooled.

Meanwhile, prepare the icing by beating the butter and cream cheese at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 6 minutes, scraping down halfway. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, beating at low speed until mixed and then medium speed until fluffy.

When the cake is cooled, scrambled the cake with two forks into fine crumbs. Stir the icing into the crumbled cake until completely mixed and becomes a crumbly consistency.

Prepare a large rimmed cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Portion the cake using a cookie scoop and roll into little balls. Place the carrot cake balls on the prepared baking sheet and freeze for at least 20 minutes.

Place the white chocolate morsels into a microwave safe bowl with the shortening or coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well between each heating, until the chocolate is completely melted.

Dip the cake balls into the melted white chocolate allowing the excess to run back into the bowl. Place the covered cake balls on wax or parchment paper and sprinkle immediately with pecan bits.
