"Greatest Brownies in the World" with Coconut Pecan Frosting

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

My 7 year-old nephew and I found this recipe in our church cookbook and couldn't wait to find out what the "Greatest Brownies in the World" tasted like.  I know that people have all sorts of ideas about what constitutes a good brownie, but these were right up my alley.  They were ooey, gooey, fudgy, and bursting with lots of chocolate.  In other words, we loved them! Although the German Chocolate Frosting was not originally part of the recipe, after ogling over some similar brownies over at Kara's Kitchen Creations we decided to give it a try and I'm glad we did! I think these "German Chocolate Brownies" were even better the next day!

The brownies look really fantastic! I wonder if all the chocolate chips on the top help to make them extra ooey gooey? I'm going to bookmark this one to try!
