These mouthwatering bars taste just like German chocolate cake!
A great change of pace from the standard brownie.

1 package Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® German chocolate cake mix

1 tub Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy coconut pecan ready-to-spread
frosting, or use Buttercreme Frosting and sprinkle with chopped pecans
1/4 cup milk

    pan, 13x9x2 inches. (Cooking spray is okay)

    until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Press half of the mixture
    (2 1/2 cups) in bottom of pan.

  3. Bake 10 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chips over baked layer. Drop
    frosting by tablespoonfuls over chocolate chips. Stir milk into remaining
    cake mixture. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto frosting layer.
