German Chocolate Cake is transformed into an easy and rich cookie bar. Use cake mix and pudding for a shortcut that is sure to wow!
I first learned how to make German Chocolate Cake in culinary school. We baked and layered a delicious chocolate cake, made the coconut pecan frosting, frosted, then added some chocolate decorations. I wasn't a big fan of coconut back then, so I had a bite and moved on.
Fast forward a few years and I decided to start baking with coconut more. Both my dad and Mr. L&C love coconut everything - especially when it's paired with chocolate. Instead of the normal layer cake, I created some delicious, and easy German Chocolate Cookie Bars.
These bars use a cake mix as the base, which speeds things up, and some chocolate pudding to make it super moist. I also added chopped German Chocolate pieces for some extra chocolate gooeyness. The traditional coconut pecan frosting is jazzed up with an extra drizzle of chocolate on top.
Trust me when I say, these are so good, they will disappear faster than you can say German Chocolate Cookie Bars. Everyone loved them! I hope you try this easy and delicious recipe.
