    AmyZoe's Note:

    Thank you Juanita for this delicious yet simple dessert that tastes like you spent all night working on it! I used a Devil's Food cake mix in it's place because I didn't have a German Chocolate cake mix. I had a hard time keeping my paws out of the cream cheese mixture and probably wound up with a little less on the cake than I was supposed to...
