House Works: German Chocolate Cake Sundae

Father's Day is this weekend. And that' the time to treat your dad to something special. How about a German chocolate ice cream sundae? In House Works, Moms Everyday blogger Alison Bickel shares the recipe.

German Chocolate Cake Sundae

2 pints chocolate or vanilla fudge swirl ice cream
1 bottle caramel sauce
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup wide flake coconut, toasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the coconut and pecans in 2 separate pie plates. Toast the coconut for 5 minutes and the pecans for 10 minutes, until the edges of the coconut start to brown and the pecans are fragrant. Let the coconut and pecans cool, then coarsely chop the pecans.

Scoop the ice cream into 6 sundae bowls. Top with warm caramel sauce, toasted coconut flakes and chopped pecans. Serve immediately.
