My sister made this recipe this past weekend, it was an old one my mom had saved from a newspaper. It was so delicious and she threw it together so quickly, I needed to share. Chocolate + coconut + powdered sugar + cream cheese…yeah, what’s not to love? Throw some vanilla ice cream into the mix and it’s even better. WARNING: it doesn’t look “pretty” hence the name earthquake.
1 cup nuts
1 cup coconut
1 German chocolate cake mix
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1 8 oz. package cream cheese at room temp
1 tsp vanilla
Spread nuts and coconut on bottom of a 9×13 greased cake pan. Mix cake according to directions and pour over bottom layer. Mix icing ingredients completely and poor over batter. Bake at 350 degreed for 45 minutes.
