This fudge recipe comes from the original German chocolate cake recipe, by the same name. The German chocolate cake is not a German chocolate, nor was it invented by a German citizen, although many people think one or the other when they see the name of this cake. The original developer of this recipe was a man whose name was German. The cake was originally named German’s chocolate cake, to note that he had been the creator of the original recipe. Over time, the apostrophe and the letter, s, were lost and forgotten from the word, leaving only the word, German. Thus, the name, German Chocolate Cake was born. In any case, the recipe is a fabulous one, starting with a relatively simple and straightforward chocolate cake that has a fabulous middle and icing. That is what the fudge recipe uses to make its recipe so special. The frosting for the original German chocolate cake includes coconut, pecans and a frosting made with brown sugar. The combination of these ingredients is quite spectacular.

This fudge recipe is made in two parts, in some ways emulating the German chocolate cake after which this fudge is named. The first part is a fabulous recipe for the chocolate fudge. This recipe includes two different types of chocolate as well as sixteen tablespoons or two sticks of butter. That is a rich chocolate fudge recipe. This part of the recipe forms the base for the rest of the fudge recipe. The topping copies the original German chocolate cake frosting recipe and does so, in spades. This topping includes rich (real) whipping cream, coconut as well as pecans. You can expect that this topping will be fabulously rich. The topping is spread over the chocolate fudge base to create the German chocolate fudge. Let this fudge chill thoroughly so that all of the flavors come together well. This will be a rich and decadent treat. Cut the pieces very, very small, as few people will be able to eat more than a very few bites of it.
