      This was a great alternative to normal german choc cake - which I can't stand because of the coconut. I made it exactly as written, and sprinkled toasted coconut, toffee pieces and chocolate sprinkles on top - it was a huge hit at my office!

      Can I give this one a perfect "10" OMG this is absolutely one of the best cakes that we've ever tasted and I've made plenty of cakes in my time. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I did the cool whip and heath bar pieces next time I will try the coconut and pecans. Again many many thanks. :-)
