German Chocolate Brownies

7 Feb

My Dad’s birthday was Saturday, so we had a Superbowl/birthday party for him last night. His favorite dessert is German chocolate cake, so I knew I wanted to make something along those lines for him to enjoy. I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website, and it looked so delicious! I liked that the brownie layer was homemade. The brownie’s turned out really good, everyone really liked them. This is another really rich, decadent dessert. I would recommend cutting this into small pieces!

2 cups chocolate chips

1/2 cup butter

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 eggs, beaten

1 container of coconut pecan frosting

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a 3 quart saucepan, melt 2 cups chocolate chips and the butter over low heat, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Stir in flour, sugar, vanilla, baking powder, salt, and eggs. Spread batter in greased 13×9 inch pan.

Bake 27-34 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely, about one hour.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix frosting, 1 cup chocolate chips and the walnuts. Spread frosting over brownies.
