Saw It. Pinned It. Did It. {Over The Top German Chocolate Brownies}

I love Pinterest...seriously! Especially when it comes to finding new recipes! Most weeks, I have at LEAST one Pinterest find on my menu...so many great recipes to try! Of course, not every recipe (or craft idea) online is actually as wonderful as it looks, so I personally love reading the opinions of those who have tried it themselves and finding out their thoughts...That's what is so great about this 'Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.' hop...you can see how successful (or not) others have been with all of those wonderful pins.
This week, I wanted to share with you a recipe I recently found- Over the Top German Chocolate Brownies!!

And my version:

Despite the crappy cell phone photo, it was AWESOME! The only change I made to the original recipe was that I left out the extra chocolate chunks...it was sweet enough without it, and for me personally, I thought it might be a bit too much! If you're a huge chocolate fan, leave them in, but it was really good without too. I also used the substitution suggestion since I could not find the German Chocolate bars.

I was a little concerned with how the frosting might turn out. Frankly, I just have not had the best luck with frosting in the past, but it was super easy...I don't think I could have messed it up if I wanted to!! Honestly, the hardest part of the whole thing was waiting for everything to cool!! I'll certainly be making this one again!!


  1. Looks awesome! Thanks for sharing, I'll have to try it. Hubby doesn't care for coconut so more for me!

  2. That looks yummy and I love German Chocolate Cake, especially the coconut frosting so YUM, I will be trying this one. :P
