One of my all-time favorite flavors is german chocolate. I LOVE coconut and of course, who doesn’t love chocolate? These easy german chocolate cheesecake bars are one of my new favorite recipes. I love that they are well, easy, but they taste like you’ve spent all day making them. They’re elegant enough for a large dinner party, but easy enough that you can throw them together for a weeknight dinner!

- 1 cup of Coconut chopped
- 1 box of German Chocolate Cake including ingredients needed on box
- 8 oz. of Cream Cheese

Start by greasing a 9 x 13 in. baking pan, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together your pecans and coconuts. Cover the bottom of your baking pan with your pecan and coconut mixture.
Mix your cake batter as directed on the box, and pour over your pecans and coconut.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, mix together your cream cheese, powdered sugar, and butter.

Spoon mixture over cake batter.
Use a knife to cut batter, giving the cream cheese and batter a marbleized look.
