German Chocolate Brownies

German chocolate brownies

With my own personal German heritage and the fact that Octoberfest is upon us what better way to spruce up already delicious brownies than with this “German” twist.

 

What you Need:

OKB brownie mix made as directed.

1 egg

5oz can (⅔ cup) evaporated milk

⅔ c sugar

¼ c butter

1 ½ c shredded coconut

½ c chopped pecans

 

As your brownies are cooking and cooling you can whip up your german chocolate frosting. To make mine I used my tried and true Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Why reinvent what is already delicious, right? I have been using this cookbook since I made my first biscuit as a toddler.

In a saucepan add the evaporated milk, beaten egg, sugar, and butter. Slowly bring the mixture to a low bubble stirring constantly until thickened.

Remove mixture from heat and add your shredded coconut and pecans.

 

***When I pulled my ingredients I realized I only had sweetened coconut in the pantry. Because my family and myself do not like things overly sweet I cut the sugar in half. If you happen to have the same issue I can attest that cutting the sugar makes themd perfect!!!
