What's Cooking - German Chocolate Brownies

TGIF Divas!  Here's  a super tastey treat that is sure to become and instant hit!  Take a brownie that’s already delicious on it’s own without anything else, then you add brown sugar, cream cheese, coconut and pecans and that perfectly delicious brownie is now transformed into a German Chocolate Brownie!  These are ridiculously easy to make, but BEWARE!! Don't make them "fudgy" or this recipe will NOT work.

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 of brownie batter.

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