German Chocolate Cake

This is the perfect make ahead dessert.  You start with a brownie filling in a cookie crumb crust.  Bake it and let it cool completely.

When the pie is cooled, make the German Chocolate filling and pile it on top.  this pie needs to be chilled at least 3 hrs. before serving.  I make it the day prior to serving.

I like to serve it with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.  I hope you have enjoyed all our treats this week.  I am being moved to intensive rehab so not sure when I will be writing again.  thanks for your continued support.
