I got this recipe from my Mom when we were down for the holidays. She said these Gooey German Chocolate Bars were great, so I decided to give them a try. OMG! She was right. These are CRAZY good!!! Coconut, pecans, chocolate cake filled with an ooey gooey filling of cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar.
These bars only take a few minutes to make. The hardest part about this recipe is waiting on the bars to cool. These are better after they have been baked, cooled and refrigerated for a few hours. We tried them warm and then cooled. We both preferred the bars after they had been in the refrigerator for a few hours. The flavors had time to come together and you could really taste the coconut and pecans.
These Gooey German Chocolate Bars would make a great treat for Valentine's Day! Chicken Legs has already requested them as his dessert. 💝
