1 c. chopped nuts 1 c. flake coconut __________________________________________________________________ 1 box German chocolate cake mix (favorite chocolate cake mix can be used) __________________________________________________________________ 1 c. melted butter or margarine 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 lb. (3 1/2 cups) powdered sugar
Mix nuts and coconut together and spread on bottom of well greased or sprayed 9 x 13 pan. Mix cake mix according to directions and pour over nut and coconut mix in pan. Blend/mix melted butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. Will be thick. Dot on cake and spread as well as you can. (you may want to blend/mix this before mixing the cake) Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Note: Nuts and coconut can be substituted for M&M's, Reese's pieces, chocolate, butterscotch, or peanut butter chips. As the name of the recipe indicates, the cake will definitely be cracked. Cracked, but gooey and rich! It needs no frosting.
