German Chocolate Brownies

These are amazing! The frosting is definitely a labor of love but worth it in the end. It took me 40-50 minutes on medium heat to get the frosting to a thicker consistency, so don’t give up on it! I will make these again!

This sounds heavenly!! Not that I need any more goodies around the house but I do have some extra caramels that I need to use up! Thanks so much for sharing at The Creative Spark – featuring it tomorrow. Happy Halloween to you and your family!
  • 30.5 oz brownie mix (2 boxes, I used Hershey’s double chunk)
  • 1 1/2 cups caramel craft bits
    For the Coconut Pecan Frosting:
    • 3 egg yolks
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup evaporated milk
    • 1/2 cup butter (or margarine)
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut (make sure it's fresh)
    • 1 cup pecans (chopped)

  1. Bake Brownies according to package. Allow to cool.
  2. Melt caramel bits in microwave for 1 minute and drizzle over brownies.
  3. Make frosting by combining butter, egg yolks, sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened, about 10 – 12 minutes (make sure to stir consistently). Add coconut and pecans. Spread over top of caramel. You may want to place in the refrigerator to harden before cutting.
  4. Top with melted chocolate and pecans if desired.
