Today is my husband’s birthday.  Pretty much every year he requests German Chocolate for his birthday cake.  Last year was a big milestone birthday for him, and I had a big German Chocolate Cake made for a get-together we had here at our place to celebrate.  Since we did the big cake last year, I decided to still do German Chocolate, but with brownies.  Meet the cute and delicious German Chocolate Brownie Bite!

These brownie bites are certainly cute, but every little morsel is packed with some serious flavor.  These moist brownies are topped with a delicious, home made coconut-pecan frosting that is traditional with most German Chocolate cakes.  I added some mini-chocolate chips, to amp up the chocolate, which compliments the brownie perfectly!

To create the brownie bites, I simply adapted a standard box brownie mix, and baked in a mini muffin tin.  You can utilize mini muffin liners, or simply bake in the pan without.  If baking without liners (like I did), be sure to let the brownies cool for about 10-15 minutes before removing from the pan.  This ensures they come out of the pan in one nice piece.  Simply run a knife around the edges and they should pop right out.

The Coconut-Pecan frosting is pretty simple to make as well.  It does require a bit of patience, as you’ll need to continually whisk the frosting base while it cooks, however its completely worth it!!  You end up with the most dreamy, decadent frosting loaded with coconut and pecans!  The frosting keeps the brownies moist, and is the perfect complement to the chocolate brownie below it.

  • Brownies:
  • 1 (15.25 oz.) Supreme Brownie Mix
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • Frosting:
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 c. half and half
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 1/3 c. sweetened flake coconut
  • 2/3 c. chopped pecans
  • 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips (optional)


  1. For frosting: In a medium saucepan, beat egg, and add half and half, sugar and butter. Whisk all ingredients together. Over medium-low heat, continually whisk as the butter begins to melt. Cook for 10-12 minutes, whisking continually until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and add the coconut and pecans. Stir to incorporate. Set frosting aside to cool completely.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir the brownie mix (including syrup packet if included), water, egg and oil. Stir just until all ingredients are incorporated. Using teaspoons, fill mini muffin tin with the batter. Will fill each cup approximately 3/4 full. Bake for 19-21 minutes. Remove from oven and let brownie bites cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan. Top each brownie with a spoonful of cooled frosting, and top with mini chocolate chips if preferred. Enjoy right away, and store any leftovers in an airtight container.

I took this batch of brownie bites into my husbands workplace, however, I think I may need to make another batch, as these were SOOOOO good!  They would be great for any pot-luck, get together or party, as they’re great to share with a crowd.

I know Jason will enjoy celebrating his birthday with these German Chocolate Brownie Bites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we have!

      Thanks so much! They really are pretty fantastic. Hope you get to try soon! ~Erin
  7. These look so good. When I was a kid I absolutely loved German Chocolate and I actually haven't had it in years because some of my family doesn't like coconut so I don't make it. But everyone is older now...possibly tastebuds have changed? I so want to make these! Pinning, and stumbling too. :)

      Thanks so much, Michelle! You'll have to make these for your family, if they don't appreciate the coconut that just means more brownie bites for you! ;) Enjoy! Erin
  8. Gosh these are such adorable looking dessert bites!
  9. ooooh! I just bought a mini muffin pan and didn't think to make brownie bites with it. found you on Wine'd Down Wednesday.
  10. How cute and delicious are these brownie bites! I am loving the look of these so much.. I have to recreate the recipe.
  11. What gorgeous pictures!!! Thank you so much for pinning with us at Foodie Fridays!
  12. Am I missing something? Should the brownie mix be a German Chocolate mix? or does the topping itself make this "German Chocolate". I don't see anywhere that german chocolate is used in the recipe.

      Hi BJ - the Caramel Pecan frosting (traditional on a German chocolate cake) is how I derived the German Chocolate Brownie Bites. Hope you get to enjoy!
  13. This brownie looks superb! Just so delicious and I’m not even a huge fan of chocolate. Luscious.
