German chocolate brownies not only are a favorite of mine but have a special place in my heart also. Years ago, when I first came to US I bought myself a slice of German Chocolate Cake for my birthday. 3 layer chocolate cake filled with the most delicious coconut frosting I’ve ever tried. It was so good I ordered myself another slice.

Fast forward years later, while pregnant with Tiffany I remembered that German chocolate cake I had and one morning I rushed to the store, bought everything I needed to bake the cake and start making a disaster in the kitchen. My cake didn’t turned out as good as the one I had from the local bakery but it was the beginning of my baking adventures.

Sometimes I wonder if I hadn’t had that chocolate craving, would this blog exist today? The answer I may never know.

And this recipe from my friend Dorothy is a winner!

The brownie layer is rich, dense and fudgy just how I like my brownies and the frosting, of the frosting! Sweet, gooey, coconut frosting mixed with chopped pecans.

I could eat the whole pan all by myself! That’s how good they are!
