German Chocolate Fudge #Christmas

German Chocolate Fudge is melt-in-your-mouth chocolate fudge topped with a thick layer of irresistible coconut pecan frosting.

There’s nothing I enjoy making (and eating) more around the holidays than fudge. Usually just a simple chocolate fudge will satisfy my sweet tooth like nothing else.

But sometimes something a little more unique and decadent is in order. Like this German Chocolate Fudge.

It’s supremely gooey and delicious.

The texture of this fudge is amazing. You have a creamy, smooth fudge layer covered in an insanely gooey icing with the crunch of coconut and pecans.

I must say that it rivals Buckeye Fudge for my all time favorite fudge. It’s hard not to eat piece after piece.

  1. Where do we find the special coconut? I have never seen it in my town in Oregon. πŸ™ I have this problem all the time with special coconuts in various recipes. Sure hope someone can answer soon so I can make this for the holidays left!
    Thanks so much!
