The brownie recipe I posted earlier this week was so good, I just couldn't stop there. I decided to make it again, and this time I topped the brownies with some homemade German Chocolate frosting.
Truly, these are incredible. The sweetness of the frosting cuts the richness of the brownies perfectly and the pecans put these brownies over the top. These are better brownies by FAR than I have ever purchased at a bakery or restaurant.
The frosting is delicious on brownies, but it is equally wonderful on dark chocolate cupcakes as well. Want to make a fantastic German Chocolate cake? Use this frosting to top a Devil's Food cake.
