German Chocolate Brownies

German Chocolate Brownies

Ok so you take a brownie that’s already delicious on it’s own without anything else on it, then you add brown sugar, cream cheese, coconut and pecans and that perfectly delicious “naked” brownie is now transformed into a German Chocolate Brownie.

These are ridiculously easy to make. Yes they use a prepared brownie mix, that’s where the easy part comes in. Don't you even roll your eyes at me.

John loves these. He’s big into the whole German Chocolate thing. The brownie is prepared as a "cake like" brownie. Don't make them "fudgy" or this recipe just won't work.

German Chocolate Brownies 1

German Chocolate Brownies
1 pkg brownie mix (19 – 20 ounce size)
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter, cut into smaller pieces
4 oz (half of an 8 oz pkg) cream cheese
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

Oven to 350. Prepare brownie mix as directed on package for cake like brownies. Pour batter into greased 9x13 inch pan.

Place butter, and cream cheese in small saucepan and cook on medium heat until cream cheese is completely melted. Don’t worry if it looks a bit curdled, it will come together when you add in the remaining ingredients. Stir in the brown sugar and take the mixture off the heat. Add the coconut and pecans and mix well. Mixture will be thick. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture all over the top brownie batter.

Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes clean. Cool before devouring.
