German Chocolate Brownies!



I love German Chocolate in any way....German Chocolate Cake,  German Chocolate Pie, anything German Chocolate, so German Chocolate Brownies sounded really good to me!  Guess what, German Chocolate Brownies are not just good they are excellent.  They are also much easier than making a German Chocolate Cake.   Here is what you will need for these:

2 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1 (4oz.) pkg. German chocolate, melted
3/4 cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup butter, melted (1  1/2 sticks)
1 tsp. vanilla

Frosting
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine eggs and sugar and beat well.  Add the melted butter and the melted chocolate that has cooled slightly.  Add the flour, pecans, vanilla and pinch of salt.   Combine well.  

Spray a 9 inch square baking pan well with nonstick spray or grease it.  Pour the batter in the pan and place in oven.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.  Do no over bake or they will get too hard.

To make the frosting,  combine milk, sugar, butter and egg yolks in a medium size sauce pan over medium heat.   Cook and stir until it thickens.  Remove from heat and stir in pecans, vanilla and coconut. . 


Allow to cool and then spread over the brownies.  Cut in squares.

    2. I believe it can be found at about any grocery store - as far as I'm concerned, the less bought at Walmart, the better.

    1. Yes, that is correct. Baker's is the only company that makes what is truly German Chocolate. It was named for the creator, Sam German, who worked for the Baker Chocolate company.

  7. Sorry to Inform you, only because you use German chocolate it won't turn into anything German (no able., pie or cookie) we don't have any of the mentioned things ;-)

    But I love all your receipts and certainly I will cook quiet a few of them <3

    1. As I have explained before, German Chocolate has nothing to do with Germany. German Chocolate made by the Baker's Chocolate company was named for the man who developed it, Sam German. He worked for Baker's Chocolate. German chocolate is a very American chocolate, yes.
