Moca Cakes

I remember making these with my mom and Kaye Carlson for some big occasion and I fell in love with them!!! Cute little square bite size cakes!!! The recipe makes quite a few but they freeze great!!! Kaye got the recipe from Helen Dean Huntsman! I have had it on a piece of paper for about 5 years and I need to get it on here so I don't lose it!!! And I'm typing it as is from the paper. If you don't have the same size cookie sheet, some adjustments may be needed.

Cream together: 
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
6 beaten egg
1 c. milk
2 t. vanilla
4 c. flour
4 t. baking soda
Mix together until all ingredients and incorporated.

Place in a school size cookie sheet {12x17} 
Bake @ 350° fro 25 minutes until lightly browned
Cool completely
Cut into 1½ x 1½ pieces ~ makes about 80-100 pieces
Separate and out into freezer to freeze.

1 c. butter, softened
4 c. powdered sugar
2 T. milk
Dash of vanilla
{1 batch of frosting frosts about 41 little cakes}
3 c. finely crushed walnuts
3 c. finely crushed unsalted peanuts ! these can be out in a blender to chop them up
{! batch of nuts does about 71 little cakes}

Frost each frozen cake, roll in nuts, square up with your hands and out back into freezer. 
These are easiest to frost and roll in nuts cake is frozen
After frosting, let freeze again until firm. Place in large baggies and keep frozen until needed. 
Take out of freezer about a half hour before needed to thaw!!!

Soo yummy!!!
