  • Preheat oven to 350°F if using a silver 9-inch springform pan (or to 325°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Mix chocolate wafer crumbs, 2 Tbsp. of the sugar and 3 Tbsp. butter; press firmly onto bottom of pan. Bake 10 min.

  • Place milk, remaining sugar, the 1/4 cup butter, remaining egg and remaining 1/2 tsp. vanilla in small saucepan; cook on medium-low heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in coconut and pecans. Cool. Spread over cheesecake just before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family loved this cheesecake! My family loved this cheesecake! The only thing that I did not do was add the sugar to the crust. It ended up being perfect without it.

I always make my husband a german chocolate cake for his birthday, a tradition started by my mother-in-law. I made this cheesecake for him last year for a little change, but still somewhat keeping the tradition. It turned out so perfectly, my mother-in-law thought I bought it!! She was very impressed that I made it. Instead of making the icing, I just bought the ready-made caramel pecan icing. It saved me a lot of time, and tasted great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I feel guilty only giving it 3 stars because everyone else gave it five. I feel guilty only giving it 3 stars because everyone else gave it five. But I just didn't care for it. It was kind of bitter to me. My brother said he really liked it but only took two bites. Hmmm... maybe it wasn't the recipe that was the problem, but I pretty sure I followed it perfectly. hmmmm... I don't know why I didn't get a 5 star cheesecake like everyone else ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the tastiest Valentine's gift ever! This was the tastiest Valentine's gift ever! I made it for my husband and we loved it. Since there are only two of us, we invited my parents over for dinner the next night and they enjoyed it too. My Mum, who doesn't eat cheesecake devoured the whole thing. The German chocolate topping is the best. I used light creamcheese to *try* and reduce calories. Yum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cheesecake a few years ago for my husband's birthday. I made this cheesecake a few years ago for my husband's birthday. He loves the German Choclate cake and I thought this would be a nice change. Wow, was he happy! He had the best of all worlds. His favorite flavor, German Choc., mixed with one of his favorite desserts, cheesecake! I lost the recipe. Happy to find it. I will soon suprise him again with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband's grandmother makes a German Chocolate cake for him for his birthday every year. I took over 2 years ago. Last here I tried this recipe and everyone absolutely loved it. I'm not a big coconut fan but I love the cheesecake part. Guess what I'm making tonight for my husband's birthday...This cheesecake :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheesecake was delicious and turned out well. Cheesecake was delicious and turned out well. I only had one problem. In the recipe when preparing the topping it says to add the remaining egg. I believe it should be egg yolk. All the other recipes I have used for the topping call for yolks. Overall is an awesome recipe. Thanks Kraft!!!

We made this wonderful cheesecake for my sister when she was ill-only sweet cold food tasted good to her.It was one of the last things she enjoyed before she passed away. I make it often for friends-and I think of my sister and how much she loved the good things in life-like chocolate!
