German Chocolate Is To Die For!

I’ve been a huge fan of German Chocolate all my life so I fell in love with this recipe right away when I found it. I just had to make it! I gathered my ingredients, mixing bowls, and utensils to put these bars together. I keep pecans in my freezer so all I had to do was get them out and chop them up for the coconut mixture. A good alternative is walnuts if you don’t have pecans. The sweetened condensed milk really makes the bars come together with a wonderful sweet taste. It was so simple and easy to make

These ​bars ​are perfect to pop into a basket to take on a picnic or just for a treat at home. I made them for my family I had visiting and it was quite a yummy treat on my table.​ I’ll be making these again for sure! ​
So if you love German chocolate like me; you’re going to want to make these bars.
