German chocolate cake bars

A Saturday sweet trest

I must admit I was surprised people were requesting a recipe for these after I posted pix on twitter, FB and Instagram. They have coconut, which is one of the ingredients I hear complaints about from time to time (“I don’t like coconut. I don’t like nuts. I don’t like chocolate. I don’t like peanut butter” etc). Anyways, I am happy to oblige and provide this recipe! I believe I found it a while back on the betty crocker or Duncan hines website

  • Ingredients for crust
  • 1 German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • Ingredients for topping
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup nuts (opt)

Combine filling ingredients and set aside

Directions for crust – preheat oven to 350. Spray 8″ pan with baking spray. Combine ingredients and press into pan. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from,oven and top with filling. Bake another 20 to 25 minutes (coconut will be light golden) cool.

Who likes coconut????

Store in covered container.

  1. How can people dislike coconut/nuts/chocolate/PB? Absent an allergy, what do these people eat (and more importantly, make) for treats? Kale Chiffon Pie, with a side of gluten-free gruel? Life is short – enjoy it!
