Chocolate Monday Night

Thanks to my SIL, Laura for this delicious-ness. And thanks to my other SIL, Rachel for answering the phone to give me the recipe. ☺

Earthquake Cake

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup coconut
1 box German chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients listed on the box)
1 block softened cream cheese
1 stick softened butter
1 box (1 pound) confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Combine pecans and coconut and layer across the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Prepare cake mix batter as directed on the box and pour over the pecan/coconut layer. Mix the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla until it is blended. It will be thick like frosting consistency. Plop spoonfuls of this mixture evenly over the cake mix. Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes.
