Comment of the week
Brenna said about the Healthy German Chocolate Cake recipe from last week…
I made these over the weekend and they were a total hit! So gooey and chocolatey! The filling is just as good (better!) than any icing and complimented the cake perfectly. I think when I make these the next time, I will cut the coconut sugar down to only 1/2 c. Thanks for the sweet recipe!
