Easy German Chocolate Brownies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • One 8x8 or 9x9 pan cooked and cooled brownies (boxed or homemade)
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk (full fat)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk, beaten
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chopped toasted pecans (see note)
  • 1 3/4 cups sweetened shredded coconut


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolk and butter. Bring to a simmer and cook for 8-10 minutes, whisking frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract, pecans and coconut. Spoon onto the brownies and carefully spread the frosting into an even layer. Cool completely (until the frosting has firmed up a bit) before cutting. You can speed along the cooling by placing the brownies in the refrigerator or freezer for a short time. Don't leave them in too long or the brownies could dry out.
