Dreamy German Chocolate Bars

Dreamy German Chocolate Bars

Oh sweet blog, I’m sorry for neglecting you.  I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for over a month now.  I’ve already made it a second time before blogging it.  Yep, it’s that good.

The search for “German Chocolate Bars” occurred the weekend before Mother’s Day.  I inherited a love for the chocolate + coconut + pecan trifecta from my mom so I knew how much she’d love these heavenly treats. I was right!  Apparently the best Mother’s Day gifts are edible :).

Did I mention how EASY these are to throw together?  Not only are they mom approved, but they are boyfriend AND kickball team approved.  I implore you to make them for your next potluck, birthday gathering, Monday night on the couch watching SVU reruns….

Dreamy German Chocolate Bars
Adapted from Six Sisters (and originally from Paula Deen, y’all!)


1 box devil’s food cake mix (don’t get the kind w/ pudding added, I used sugar free)
1/2 cup  unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk (fat free worked fine)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350.

Grease a 9×13 baking dish.  First up, the crust.  In a medium bowl, mix together cake mix, butter and egg.  Get your hands dirty and press it evenly into the bottom of your dish or pan.

Pop in the oven for 7 minutes and then set aside.

While the crust is baking, mix the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, eggs, pecans and coconut.

Pour over the crust.

Top with chocolate chips.

Bake 24-30 minutes until the top gets light golden brown.

Remove from oven and cool before cutting into squares.  I usually get impatient and pop the dish in the fridge for a bit.
