So one of my chatboard girls mentioned German Chocolate Brownies and I thought I was going to slip all over myself right then and there from the copious amounts of drool eminating from my mouth. Seriously? German Chocolate BROWNIES? I've never thought of such a thing much less seen it or made it.
Ofcourse, I immediately scavenged the world wide web for recipes. Most used boxed cake mix etc. That's not for me. Brownies are too easy to make from scratch to use boxes of the lord only knows what all they put in those things. I finally found a recipe from Taste of Home that fit the bill. They were so easy to make and so delicious. The great thing is, this recipe doesn't make a large amount either so its perfect for a small get together or family of four.
German Chocolate Brownies
*Pictures coming this weekend*
1 stick butter, cubed
4 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Self Rising Flour
2 tbs butter, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup shredded or flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tbs corn syrup
2 tbs milk
Melt butter and chocolate. Beat eggs and sugar in KA Mixer. Add vanilla and slightly cooled chocolate mixture. Add flour. Pour into an 8 x 9 greased pan and bake for 20 minutes at 350. Do not overbake. Let cool on wire rack.
Combine topping ingredients and mix well. Use a spoon or cookie scoop to drop topping on to slightly warm brownies. Gently spread.
I served them like this but the recipe recommends to broil for about 2 minutes and then recool. ENJOY!
