Best German Chocolate Brownies

These things are dangerous! Somebody get them out of my home. But seriously, do not. I can’t give them up, they are just too good. I will maintain a regular diet when they are gone until then I can’t make any promises.

Chocolate Brownies

Why are these things so incredibly good? Well, first off they’re inspired by German chocolate cake, so how would they not be good? Second, they’re perfectly fudgy and chewy (just how I like my brownies) and then they have just the right level of chocolate intensity to be labeled as German chocolate. My first batch – waayyyy too intensely chocolatey. Good, but not meant for these. The sweet coconut-pecan topping that covers these adds amazing texture then just takes brownies to the next level. When you make them this way your basic, topping free brownies may start to seem rather boring.

Chocolate Brownies

These brownies could make your granny proud! I know my Grandma would have loved them. I will be making a batch with her in the next life. Enjoy!
