Preheat the oven to 350°F.
For the chocolate cookies:
Pour the cake mix, oil and eggs into a large mixing bowl, stirring until combined.
Spoon 1-inch balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Set aside to cool for at least 10-15 minutes before adding the frosting topping.
For the caramel-coconut frosting:
Combine caramel sauce, coconut flakes and pecans in a small bowl.
Top each cookie with a spoonful of frosting.
Lightly sprinkle the caramel with salt, if you'd like a salted-caramel flavor (optional).
