German Topping (For German Chocolate Cake)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

A lady I know makes the best German filling (for upside down German chocolate cake where the gooey bit is in the middle) in the world. I can't get enough of this stuff. Makes enough to fill one 9-inch chocolate cake. This will keep for one week in the fridge.

This was okay...I find the recipe on the side of the package of Baker's German Chocolate is by far better.
