Good Eating Monday: German Chocolate Brownies!

Well, the saga with my car continues.  The problem with it being too dead to start continued. The first time it cranked over with a jump last Monday was the only time jumping it worked.  A day later it was dead. Then we put in a new battery and a day later, dead again. 
I've been through this before with this car and it usually means the alternator is gone--despite the fact the parts guy at the parts store  measured it as still working. And perhaps it was--for the last time. 
So today, we had to have it towed to the local Pep Boys, about 2 miles away. Fortunately we got the tow through them, so it was only $20 bucks. 

Today's Good Eating Recipe is German Brownies!


It's a pass-along recipe. An officer in our Bible Study passed to me before she left and I think an officer in her unit in Germany invented the recipe--I'm not sure. Anyway, it's based on a box of German chocolate cake mix and a tub of Coconut-Pecan frosting that goes with it.
It creates rich brownies with a chocolate & coconut layer in the middle.


Ingredients:
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tub Coconut Pecan Frosting, any brand
1/4 cup milk
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix, any brand

Directions:
Set over to 350 & oil spray a 9 x 13 pan.

Empty cake mix into a bowl, slice softened butter into it and cut into cake mix with pastry cutter until well combined in a crumbly mix. 

Press 1/2 of cake mix into the bottom of the sprayed 9 x 13 pan and bake 20 minutes.. After 20 minutes, remove & sprinkle with chocolate chips & spoon frosting over this bottom layer. 

In bowl of remaining cake mix, stir 1/4 cup milk. It should have a liquid like consistency, so add more milk as needed. Then pour this over cake in pan. Bake another 25-30 minutes. Let cool & cut into squares!

I made it once and it was a hit with the Airmen. Looking at it again reminds me I'd like to make it again sometime---probably when I use the oven more again. Spring temps mean more jello desserts that don't require baking!

Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
