Information taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_chocolate_cake . . This cake is actually not a traditional German dessert. The original recipe was sent by a home…maker in Dallas in 1957 to a newspaper in Texas. It used Baker's German's Sweet Chocolate, which was created in 1852 by an Englishman named Samuel German for the Baker's chocolate brand. Coconut is also a major baking product of the company.. The cake became quite popular and General Foods - which owned Baker's Chocolate at the time - sent the recipe to other newspapers in the country. Sales of the company are said to have increased by as much as 73%. The apostrophe and the "s" were accidentally dropped in subsequent publications, creating the "German Chocolate Cake" we know today. 
It came from the Aztecs of Mexico
It originated from a Indo-European root word
When Europeans went and saw the Aztecs they saw chocolate and brought it bak here but we made it sweet.
The origins of chocolate, which is derived fromthe Theobroma cacao tree, stretch back at least 4000years.The plant is believed to have originated in the Amazon orOrinoco basin…s in South America and was regarded by the Aztecs asbeing of divine origin ('Theobroma' means 'food of thegods')..
In the 1700s.
