Some days I have a lot to say; however, today is not one of those days. So instead of telling you about the fact that right now my neighbor is wielding a broom while running around his backyard shooing away geese or about the fact that my dog has been incessantly licking my toes for the past 2 hours, I’ll simply talk to you about German Chocolate Brownies.
For as long as I can remember, German Chocolate anything has been on my radar, not because I love it, but because it’s one of my dad’s absolute favorites. Since he’s pretty much a lover of all things chocolate, coconut, and pecan – it’s no wonder he’s mildly obsessed with this classic flavor combination.
To create this winning combo, I started with my favorite recipe for moist, decadent, fudgy brownies and because that’s simply not enough – I slathered them with an irresistibly delicious nutty coconut frosting.
There’s something about dense chocolate covered in gooey coconut and pecan topping that just says Fall to me. Maybe it’s the autumnal colors, maybe I’m just crazy (really, there’s no maybe about it), but I thought you might like to make these on a random Monday night because… well, just because. Sometimes that’s the only reason you need.
