German chocolate cake converted to a cookie. German Chocolate Cookie Bars are the eighteenth of my 25 Cookies of Christmas.


  • 1 pkg German chocolate cake mix (any brand)
  • 1 stick butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 container coconut pecan icing


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cream eggs and butter.
  3. Add cake mix, and combine thoroughly.
  4. Stir in coconut and pecans.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto cookie sheet.
  6. Press a thumb into each cookie to make an indentation.
  7. Fill indentation with about a ½ tsp of coconut pecan icing.
  8. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
  9. Cool on wire rack, and store in a tightly covered container.


  • Our family loves coconut and pecans so we include them in both the cookie and the icing. Omit the stir-ins from the cookies if you prefer.
  • Chop a bar of German Chocolate into small pieces and stir into the cookie batter (as you could stir in chocolate chips).
