    Barb Gertz's Note:

    These mouthwatering bars taste just like German chocolate cake! A great change of pace from the standard brownie. The recipe comes from Betty Crocker. Chill time is 2 hours not included.

      I was so surprised by these bars. I needed two pans of bars for our church supper and I picked these as one of the two. When I was putting it together I wasn't too sure how it was going to work, much less look. I snitched a corner out (note to others...grease your corners well!), and these were very, very tasty! Thank you!

      YUMMY! My whole family loves German chocolate and this was a great, fast dessert bar that took only minutes to put together. Make sure you have a napkin handy, though, because the gooey, coconut frosting might ooze out when you take a bite! What a problem, huh? Thanks, Barb! :)

      We love this recipe! We'd also found it on the box. Like others mentioned, really easy, and it's a little different than the usual brownie, but it's always received really well. Even for such an easy recipe, the one thing I've done wrong a few times was that I've overbaked the bottom crust layer - 10 min is plenty :) Great recipe!
