Broiled Coconut Topping

Recipe by Michelle S.

My husband does not like the gooey icing of German Chocolate cake, so I found this pretty slick alternative! It has all the flavors, but a very distinct "crunch", it almost caramelizes on top of the cake. Try it, I think you will be pleasantly surprised! I do not use the nuts as my husband does not like nuts in his cakes, only cookies! This is perfect for a 13x9 cake, I often use a Swiss Chocolate cake mix.

Wow! Really good. Very different from the usual German chocolate toppings. Has a delicate candy like crunch on top but moist and creamy underneath. Watch broiler closely! Top started to brown after just two minutes
