The fact that I have allowed that to happen is a terrible mistake on my part. However, I feel that I have properly atoned with these cheesecake bars.

I have always adored traditional German chocolate cake. My mother used to bake one for me for special occasions and for some ordinary days, too. Of course, the very best part is the frosting. I'm not even sure I need the cake. Just give me a little bowl of frosting, and I could be happy as can be.
With these blondies, we have all the components of that fantastic frosting. Pecans, coconut, brown sugar, and butter come together to make a pan full of bars very reminiscent of my childhood love. Plus, I threw in some chocolate chips for good measure.
