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!

    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!

    I am going to make these brownies for father’s day. What size pan did you use? Thanks so much for a great recipe.

        2 boxes of brownie mix in one 13×9? How long did you bake it? 

        • Jamielyn replied on September 22nd, 2014 at 1:38 pm

          Hi Kelley! Yes, I used 2 boxes, but I can’t remember how long they baked for. I would add 10 minutes to what the package says and then check it with a toothpick and add time accordingly after that.

    I was getting ready to make these and realized the brownie mixes that I bought are for an 8×8 pan not 9×13. What did you use? 
    I get irritated when I forget to look at that,  but I think it should stand out more on the box.

      Hi Gwen! The 8×8 should work fine! I’ve used both.
