Rich German Chocolate Brownies

The trademark German chocolate brownie is made of mild, sweet chocolate and has an irresistibly rich and gooey nutty, coconut frosting.


24 servings


1 (12 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, beaten
1 container coconut pecan frosting (e.g. Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (6 ounces)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).

In 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.

Bake for 27 to 34 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

In medium bowl, mix frosting, 1 cup chocolate chips and the walnuts. Spread frosting mixture over brownies. For brownies, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.
