German Chocolate Brownie Heaven

German Chocolate Brownies
from The Lion House Entertaining Cookbook

  • 1 German chocolate cake mix
  • 2/3 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tub coconut-pecan frosting
  • 1/4 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9X13 pan.
  2. In a large bowl using a pastry blender, cut in butter with the cake mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Press 1/2 the mixture (about 2 1/2 cups) into the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot crust. Drop frosting by tablespoonfuls over chocolate chips.
  5. Mix 1/4 cup of milk into the remaining cake mix/butter mixture. Stir to combine.
  6. Drop this batter by teaspoonfuls over the frosting. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely. Cut into squares and refrigerate until served. (These brownies really do taste best cool.)
These are amazing! They are fun to make, fast, and very impressive. Even though it uses a cake mix, you wouldn't know it from the flavor. They are really gooey out of the oven, but they do solidify a bit. Nut fearers- you don't even notice the nuts in the frosting part of the brownie.
