Ingredients

1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup flaked coconut
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13" pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine oatmeal with 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup chocolate chips. Pour boiling water over all, and let stand for 5 minutes. Then add the cocoa and mix well with a wire whick so the chocolate and butter melt. Add 3/4 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar and whisk to combine. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.


Add eggs and 2 tsp. vanilla and beat until combined. Then add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix with a wire whisk until well blended. Immediately pour batter into prepared pan.


Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-35 minutes until cake pulls away from sides of pan and springs back when lightly touched in center.


Prepare topping while cake is baking. Combine 1/3 cup melted butter, walnuts, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, coconut, cream, and 1 tsp. vanilla in a medium bowl; mix well. When cake tests done, remove from oven and set on wire rack.


Turn oven to broil. Drop topping mixture by small spoonfuls onto cake; spread very gently to cover. Place under broiler, 4" from heat source, and broil for 2-5 minutes until topping is bubbly and light golden brown. Watch this every single second, turning the cake from front to back so the frosting cooks evenly. It can burn in a couple of seconds, so keep watching! When the frosting is bubbling furiously all over the cake and is beginning to brown in spots, remove cake from oven and sprinkle with 1 cup chocolate chips. Let stand for 10 minutes, then carefully swirl the chocolate chips into the frosting with the tip of a knife. Cool and cut into squares. Serve warm or cool. Serves 12
