German Chocolate Brownies: chewy brownies with coconut pecan icing and melted chocolate. Nothing beats this!  


– 1 cup salted butter cut into tablespoon – 4 ounce German chocolate baking bar – 2 cups granulated sugar – 4 large eggs – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1 cup all-purpose flour sifted For the topping: – 1 cup granulated sugar – 1 cup evaporated milk – 1/2 cup salted butter cut into tablespoon – 3 large egg yolk – 1 & 1/2 cups toasted coconut – 1 cup toasted chopped pecans – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract – Melted chocolate melting wafers for garnish optional


Heat the oven to 350°F. To prepare, line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Melt cut butter in a big pot or dutch oven over medium-low heat. 

Step 1

Break the chocolate bar into squares and add them to the pot. Stir occasionally to melt the chocolate and butter. 

Step 2

Remove from heat and whisk in sugar until smooth. Add each egg and whisk thoroughly before adding the next. Whisk in salt and vanilla.  

Step 3

Mix in the flour until no dry spots remain. Pour into baking dish. Bake for 35–38 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.  

Step 4

Place on wire rack to cool completely. Make the topping when the brownies cool. In a medium saucepot, combine sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and egg yolks.  

Step 5

Heat medium-low and mix. Stir occasionally to melt butter. Mix the liquid occasionally as it simmers to avoid sticking. Simmer and thicken for 12 minutes, then remove from heat. 

Step 6

Add coconut, pecans, and vanilla. Stir. Stir for 5 minutes to thicken and spread. Smooth brownie frosting. Let it cool completely. If using, cut bars and sprinkle melted chocolate. Serve now.
