NOT German Chocolate!

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...
