I always love creating easy desserts that taste complicated! For a while now I’ve been trying to think up the perfect destiny for a certain German Chocolate cake mix in our pantry. And all at once it came to me in a vision: mini chocolate bars, chocolate chips, butter…..(of course!) Which led to a dessert that chocoholics will love! Even if you do not like chocolate, this recipe will convert you to a more superior human being. Or maybe it will just encourage the ol’ thighs to become more prominent, but don’t let that little idea/fact scare you off!
The Ingredients: 1 German Chocolate cake mix, 1 stick of melted butter, 1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 regular size chocolate bar or 4-5 mini chocolate bars.
In a large mixing bowl, using a rubber spatula, combine the cake mix, melted butter, coconut milk, and chocolate chips. Mix until the batter is thick and creamy. Divide the batter in half, press one half into the bottom of a baking dish. Break the chocolate bar or bars into half-inch pieces. Arrange them evenly atop the first layer. Press the remaining batter over the tops of the chocolate pieces, being careful not to mix them into the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The cake should be slightly crispy on the top and soft, but not overly doughy in the middle (my explanations aren’t for everyone). Serve while warm.
It may not look like much. but appearances are deceiving!
