    NOT German Chocolate!

    Donna Brashear from CA.

    This recipe should be re named. It is NOT a German chocolate brownie since German's sweet chocolate is not used. It's just a brownie with coconut pecan frosting. (not even a scratch made brownie)It is misleading to those of us who actually cook from scratch AND were searching for an actual German Chocolate Brownie recipe using German's Sweet Chocolate. Great for kids but, not for real bakers. My search continues...

    Split and Divide

    Serina Ortega from TUOLUMNE, CA

    I like to take the Brownies once they are cut and split them in the middle and add the frosting to the middle as well as to the top. The whole purpose of the brownie is the frosting. I add extra pecans on top for decoration and additional flavor.

    Diane Ney from STONY PLAIN, AB

    Terrific and so easy...I would never have thought of using a brownie mix which I always have in my pantry. It is so much simpler and actually less messy to eat than the regular German Chocolate Cake.

    MARIE PINEO from Hudson, ME

    I had these at a work function and wondered what the secret was! When I made them at home, my husband said, "What are you doing to the brownies?!" He and the kids then proceeded to eat the entire pan, but not before I got one myself! DELICIOUS!!!

    Great Recipe

    Lori Wain from Cranberry Township, PA

    This recipe is easy to prepare, and the kids will have fun putting the topping on the brownies. For those that don't like the coconut taste of German Chocolate, just leave theirs plain.

    I made these for my husband to take to a work function. He said they flew off the plate. The next day he passed around the recipe to several co-workers. This is a quick alternative to a homemeade German Chocolate Cake.

    Very much like homemade

    Nancy Oltman from Hastings, NE

    Baking is one of my passions, so I generally bake from scratch. However, when that isn't possible, this one is easy, but much more than that. The brownies are so good, its even up to my standards of very good quality in taste and appearance.

    Very good

    Anonymous from

    I tried these brownies as a first time baker and they are amazing. I made them for a wine,cheese, and dessert party and they were gone in a couple of minutes. I found out that the less you keep it in the oven the chewier and gooier they are. You just have to cool them down. I would reccomend this to everyone.
