The easiest EVER recipe for German Chocolate Cake in a bar. Using a cake mix makes this a quick to prepare dessert – cheesecake and cake !
If you are looking for an easy dessert to serve warm or cold, these German Chocolate Cake Bars are just the dessert for you.
The Chocolate Cake layer is made from a Cake mix, of which I had half a box left and had no idea how to use it, until I thought about a layering kind of dessert, which proved to be a winner.
You should get between 9 and 12 servings from this recipe, depending on your cut.
It is quite a rich sweet treat, therefore I would recommend rather slicing smaller squares than larger.
Seconds might very well be requested, rich or not, as these Cake Bars are extremely delicious and so addicting.
I love how easy it is to slice and serve them. Some of us add some whipped cream. However, that is totally optional – ice-cream on a warm piece is heavenly though !
We had a few slices leftover the next day which we enjoyed at tea time and after that we had no more leftovers.
Not surprising though, you would have one piece. Think that would keep your sweet tooth in check, only to find yourself with another piece a few minutes later. I refer to “you” but really mean “ME”.
Chop the nuts as per your preference
My son is not a fan of desserts, or any dishes for that matter, containing nuts. But he loved these German Chocolate Cake Bars.
I did chop the nuts fairly small though, you can chop it any way you like, rough, medium or fine-ish.
