READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mamas Recipes

Yummy! No need to say more. Just put on top of German Chocolate Cake Mix (made by directions on box of course)! This recipe is smaller than some, and don't worry if it kind of drips down.

My mom made this recipe to top a German Chocolate cake when I was a little girl, and it is absolutely delicious and easy to make. As rich as German Chocolate cake is, I couldn't stop at one piece. Yummy icing! Thank you for sharing.
