German Chocolate Brownies

German Chocolate Brownies - Memories by the Mile


We love my German Chocolate Brownies at our house, with or without frosting. Half of us like nuts the other don’t, so I usually make them just that way, half and half. I aim to please! Brownies are always a quick, easy, and delicious treat or dessert to satisfy that sweet tooth or chocolate craving and easy to take with you to any picnic or party.

Last weekend we were at the sand dunes enjoying the beautiful summer weather and 4th of July weekend! So I quickly made up a pan of brownies to take with us. Their moist and delicious and always a crowd pleaser. I don’t always put frosting on them, these German Chocolate Brownies are moist and delicious enough to stand on their own, so I just sprinkle them with a little powdered sugar and call them done.

      My wife is pregnant and she has this itnlsiabae craving for fudge brownies. Being a man, what do I know about baking, right? I looked for the simplest brownie recipe online and came across this guide. Good thing it was able to differentiate a cake brownie from a fudge brownie or else I would be wasting all the effort. My first try was a miss but I think I finally got the secret. Baking brownies all for the sake of my first born.

      Can you do a video about losing wgehit/fat but in the context of carbohydrates, fat and cal? I just heard a couple of weeks ago that a decrease of carbohydrates will result in fat loss. I always though that only fat and cal will result in wgehit/fat loss. Some say that you can’t actually get fat of fat as long as you take good fats I actually hope you can explain the difference of carbohydrates, fat and cal and what the best option(s) is/are for losing wgehit/fat.That would be great.

    German Chocolate cake was my favorite when I was a kid, and I haven’t had it in years. I KNOW I will love these brownies! Pinning this now! And I will stumble them too! If you have a free moment, I would love it if you would come link them up (or any other favorite recipes) at Foodie Fridays!

      I love brownies. Brownies are my most fratvioe snack food in the world. My older sister used to bake brownies for me but since she went to college last summer, I miss her and I miss her brownies a lot. So I looked for an easy brownie recipe and found this online. By following the steps, I was able to bake my first batch successfully.

      Jay that’s funny and what your roommate did with the edge of the brnweios that night? Totally sounds like something I would do (and probably have done!). Hopefully, your roommate find the pan and gets one for his own household because my guess would be, to this day he’s still terrorizing brownie pans everywhere! Heh.(PS thanks for the email about the Top commentators plugin.. I took a look and it should be fixed up now. I hadn’t even noticed!)
