Recipe # 17 German Chocolate Bars

My mom found this recipe free in a magazine when they started making those Nestle Swirled Morsels. Those are the ones that mix the brown and white chocolates all in one little chocolate chip. These look beautiful so I really do recommend getting the swirled morsels. Another thing great about these cookies is that they're easy to cut and they keep their shape nice on a cookie tray. Oh yeah, and they taste good!

German Chocolate Bars

1 (18.25oz) German Chocolate Cake mix
1/3 cup margarine, softened
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 large egg, unbeaten
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 unsweetened coconut, divided
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup swirled morsels, divided

Place the cake mix in a bowl and cut in the margarine and lightly beaten egg with a pastry blender until crumbly. Press the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9 by 13 pan. Combine sweetened condensed milk, unbeaten egg and vanilla and beat until well combined. Stir in 1 cup of coconut, the pecans and 1/2 cup of the swirled morsels. Spread evenly over base; sprinkle with remaining coconut and morsels. Lightly press down the morsels with your hand. Bake for 30-35 minutes in a 350 degree oven (center will be almost set when done baking and feel firm when cool). them, cut them into the size bar you like and try not to eat all of them at once ;)
