German Chocolate Bars made with Betty Crocker Cake Mix

Every loves German Chocolate cake and these bars are always the first thing to disappear from our holiday dessert table. They’re so easy to make, why not bake two so you can keep some for yourself?

We originally tripped over this recipe on the back of a Betty Crocker cake mix box years ago and thanks to modern technology we can now give credit where credit’s due –


  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy coconut pecan frosting
  • 3 tablespoons milk
