So I came up with the most AMAZING brownie recipe a few weeks ago, I just had to share! German Chocolate BROWNIES! My family loves German chocolate cake.I love it too… BUT only because of the frosting! The frosting is DIVINE! I eat it by the spoonful’s (I probably shouldn’t admit that). ;) I’m really not the biggest cake lover…but brownies, those are a whole different story! So I decided to combine my love of brownies, chocolate, caramel and coconut frosting to create these little naughty brownies. They are super rich and full of chocolate goodness! Trust me, you’ll want to file this one away!

German Chocolate Brownies


  • 2 boxes of brownie mix ( I used Hershey’s double chunk)
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of kraft caramel bits


1. Bake Brownies according to package. Allow to cool.

German Chocolate Brownies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut (make sure it’s fresh)
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped


  1. Combine egg yolks, sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla in a large saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 12 minutes ( Make sure to stir consistently for at least 10 min). Add coconut and pecans. Beat until thick enough to spread. Pour over top of brownies. You may want to place in the refrigerator to harden.

    Mmm those look so good! I love that kind of frosting also. But something I can eat by itself is cool whip.

    I’m not sure what’s German about them ;-), but these look so extremely delicious, that they just made number one on my “recipes I must try” hit list ;-). Love your blog, you are such a great source of inspiration! Thanks for sharing!
