Between February 9th and 15th, we celebrate two birthdays and Valentine’s Day. That’s a lot of treats. It is a really happy week for my boys! My oldest son turned 15 (what the heck, how did he get so old?) and he requested German Chocolate Brownies. Yep, brownies, not cake.
We aren’t huge cake fans around here. Brownies are so much more moist and yummy. Everyone knows that the coconut pecan frosting is the best part of German Cake. If you like German Chocolate Cake, you should love these brownies!
If you’ve never tried the homemade German chocolate frosting, you really should. It takes a bit of time, but it is sooo worth it. That stuff in the can is just plain nasty in my opinion. Not even in the same class as the real thing.
