The Best German Chocolate Brownies

Dense, rich, fudgy brownies topped with a coconut and pecan frosting that’s sweet and full of texture from shredded coconut and pecans. The brownies are an easy, one-bowl, no-mixer recipe that’s as fast as using a boxed mix and they turn out fudgy with zero cakiness. The frosting takes less than 10 minutes to make and tastes so good on top of these decadent brownies that are the best German chocolate brownies I’ve ever had.




INGREDIENTS:
Brownies
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
6 ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I used Trader Joe’s 72% Pound Plus Bar)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon brewed coffee (leftover or cold coffee is okay), optional but recommended
1 teaspoon instant espresso granules, optional but recommended
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Topping/Frosting 
1/2 cup (4 ounces) full-fat evaporated milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened and quartered
2 large egg yolks (discard whites or save for another use)
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut flakes
heaping 1/2 cup chopped Fisher Pecans, lightly toasted if desired
DIRECTIONS:
Brownies – Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil leaving overhang and spray with cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside.
To a large microwave-safe bowl, add the butter, chocolate, and heat on high power to melt, about 2 minutes. Stop to check and stir after 1 minute. Heat in 15-second increments until chocolate has melted and mixture can be stirred smooth. Allow mixture to cool momentarily before adding the eggs so they don’t scramble.
Add the eggs, sugar, vanilla, optional coffee, optional espresso granules (neither make brownies taste like coffee and both enhance and round out the chocolate flavor), and whisk vigorously to combine.
Add the flour, salt, and stir until smooth and combined without overmixing.
Turn batter out into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula as necessary.
