    Kit Katchen's Note:

    I never liked German Chocolate cake until I met my husband and got this recipe from my mother in law. It is soooo good! It's also horribly unhealthy for you but sometimes it's worth it to indulge! I always have to make it for my hubby's birthday and now my dad's birthday as well! As a note, this recipe is for the icing & we just buy a box of mix for the cake. Please note a few things: 1) Be sure to stir the mix every few seconds on the stove to avoid sticking 2) Be sure the mix comes to a strong, rolling boil to provide a smooth texture by reducing those sugar grains 3) This is a caramel type icing and won't adhere to the sides of the cake well 4) I usually premeasure the milk, coconut, & pecans to help things move along quickly. Enjoy!!
