Volcano Cake

I found a few recipes today that I had saved from Clara Imel's file while working for her. I'll be posting them here just to have a place to save them. I haven't made any of them yet, so if you make it, let me know if it's good!

Volcano Cake
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecans or walnuts
1 pkg. German chocolate cake mix
10 bite size Almond Joy candy bars, chopped
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, room temp.
1/2 cup butter, room temp.
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350*. Spray 13x9x2" pan. Mix coconut & nuts and spread evenly in pan. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in candy bars and pour batter over coconut and nuts. Combine cream cheese, butter, and sugar. Randomly drop tablespoons of mixture on top of batter - do not spread them. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until sides of cake pull away from pan.
If feeling indulgent, serve with whipped cream.
Update: See review here

I bought all the ingredients to make this one - but the kids and Mark ate the candy bars. LOL! I can't wait to taste it.

Haha. I'm cracking up about everyone eating the candy bars before you could make the cake. It won't be long before my kids can reach up into my pantry and find all of those goodies.
