Heat oven to 350 F. Line bottom and sides of a 13x9 pan with nonstick foil, leaving flaps extending beyond ends for removing bars after baking. Lightly butter the pan.
In a small bowl, combine 1 cup toasted pecan pieces, 1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut, graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Press into the bottom of the pan.
In a double boiler, melt German chocolate with 1/2 cup butter and mix until smooth and silky. Whisk together melted chocolate and brown sugar until blended. Beat in 2 eggs until blended. Beat in buttermilk. Stir in flour. Spread gently across the lined pan with an offset spreader.
Sprinkle batter surface with remaining 1 cup flaked sweetened coconut and remaining 1 cup toasted pecan pieces. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and remaining 1/2 cup butter, both room temperature. Beat at low speed until creamy. Add powdered sugar. Beat again until smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over sprinkled batter. This will sink during baking, creating a rich filling finish when turned upside down.
Bake 35-45 minutes, just until a tester comes out with fudgy crumbs. Do not overbake. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Lift out of the pan by foil ends and invert carefully on a large cutting board surface. Peel away foil. Cut with a bench scraper into bars and present in cupcake paper liners.
Note: To toast pecans, heat oven to 350 F. Spread pecans on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 5-10 minutes until aromatic and darkened in color as desired.
