German Chocolate Mousse:

  2. Remove out from the heat. Add the chocolate and cover for five minutes. Using a whisk, mix the chocolate until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into a large bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and let for 1 hour. Use a rubber spatula to fold in until the mixture is totally combined. Do not whisk or beat. Just still gently fold in until the mixture has one color.
  4. Cover the mixture and let it cool for about 3 hours or until fully set.

Coconut-Pecan Filling:

  2. Repeat the layers again so that you end with the coconut-pecan filling on top. You will probably only use about ⅔ of the prepared cake. You can wrap and freeze the rest.
  3. Decorate with halved pecans, if desired. Keep refrigerated and serve cold.
