The Best German Chocolate Brownies

Dense, rich, ultra fudgy brownies topped with a coconut and pecan frosting that’s sweet and full of texture from shredded coconut and pecans.

I’m not sure why the ‘frosting’ on German chocolate cakes or brownies is called frosting when it’s more like a topping, but I’m not about to question the name of something that tastes so good.

I used chopped Fisher Pecans in the topping. Fisher Nuts is the only national brand of recipe nuts entirely without preservatives making them an excellent choice for baking.

The brownies would be a wonderful treat for any mom you’d like to celebrate on Mother’s Day. Check out these Fisher recipes created by celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 6 ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I used Trader Joe’s 72% Pound Plus Bar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon brewed coffee (leftover or cold coffee is okay), optional but recommended
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso granules, optional but recommended
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste


  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) full-fat evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened and quartered
  • 2 large egg yolks (discard whites or save for another use)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut flakes
  • heaping 1/2 cup chopped Fisher Pecans, lightly toasted if desired


  1. Brownies – Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil leaving overhang and spray with cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside.
  2. To a large microwave-safe bowl, add the butter, chocolate, and heat on high power to melt, about 2 minutes. Stop to check and stir after 1 minute. Heat in 15-second increments until chocolate has melted and mixture can be stirred smooth. Allow mixture to cool momentarily before adding the eggs so they don’t scramble.
