1 package German Chocolate Cake mix
1 20-oz can apple pie filling
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp water
Place apple pie filling in blender and process until the apples are in 1/4 inch pieces (or smooth, which is the way I like it). In a large bowl, blend cake mix, eggs, and apple pie filling (about five minutes – it should be rather fluffy). Place batter in a greased 13x9x2in pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick pushed in the center comes clean. Remove and allow to cool completely before icing.
(Icing is optional) Combine confectioners sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and water in a bowl and beat until smooth. Add more or less liquid or sugar to make a thick-runny glaze (about the consistency of thin honey). Drizzle glaze over cooled cake by spoonfuls. Glaze will semi-harden in about 10 minutes.
