German Chocolate Cake is known for the chocolate-flavored sponge with a sweet and gooey coconut-pecan icing. It is not actually German in origin; it was in fact named after a British-American chocolateir named Samuel German, and the recipe itself was originally developed by a Texan named Mrs. Clay in 1957.

These cookies are a shortcut, cake-mix recipe made with a box of German chocolate cake mix. They are a rich chocolate cookie stuffed with pecans and coconut. If you are looking for a completely homemade version, see note*.
