These fabulous German Chocolate Brownies are packed with rich, chocolaty flavor. Instead of making a traditional German Chocolate Coconut Frosting to go on top, I mixed a sweetened coconut mixture through the brownie batter, and baked the two together. This made the brownies super moist and delicious. I have made them twice in the past couple of weeks (help me Rhonda, seriously) and they were well received by the boy scouts and neighbors I shared them with. A person such as myself cannot be trusted with a pan of these hanging out in her kitchen, truly. They are the sort of dessert you need to make, taste and then get them far, far away.

But maybe that’s just me.

Hope some of you give them a go! The cub scouts and nieghbors in your life will be well pleased. 🙂

8. Into a small mixing bowl place 1/2 C butter. Pop it into the microwave and melt the butter.
9. Add 1 C coconut, 1/4 C chopped pecans, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 Tb milk and 6 Tb brown sugar. Stir well to combine.

10. Spoon the coconut mixture onto the top of the brownie batter.

Drag a butter knife through the two layers so they become blended, somewhat. You don’t want to totally incorporate the two.

Just mix them up in a marbly kind of way.

11. Pop the pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
12. Cool completely and cut into bars.
