German Chocolate Brownie Bites

This month I have joined a "Pinterest Challenge" group on Facebook where ladies share and post their Pinterest fails/successes. It has been so much fun to see what other people are pinning and trying out! I have been trying to share a few pins a week and my family seems to like it... since they are eating well! I will have to do a roundup blog of all the things I have tried at the end of the month. Today, I am sharing these German Chocolate Brownie Bites with you! We are headed my husband's boss's house for a "Steak Supper" and volunteered to bring dessert. I wasn't sure how many people would be there so I'm very glad this recipe make 4 dozen brownie bites. Hopefully every single one gets eaten up so we don't have to take them home! However, they are so good, I know my family wouldn't mind taking them home...

German Chocolate Brownie Bites

- 4 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups baking cocoa
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 1/2 cups flour, plus 1.5 tbsp. extra at high altitude
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease your mini cupcake pan.
2. In your Kitchenaid mixer, mix your eggs, salt, cocoa, vanilla, and baking powder together.
3. Add your melted butter and sugar and mix until well combined.
4. Stir in your flour and  mini chocolate chips.
5. Spoon 2 tbsp. of batter into your mini cupcake pans and bake for 10-12 minutes.
6. Allow brownies to cool 10 minutes before taking them out of your pan. Transfer to your wire rack to continue to cool.

- 4 egg yolks
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 8 tbsp. butter, softened
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups chopped pecans
- 2 1/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes

1. Beat your egg yolks, sugar and salt together.
2. Add the butter and continue to beat together.
3. Slowly add your cream and then your vanilla.
4. Transfer frosting to a saucepan and heat on low for 15-20 minutes while stirring. Your frosting should "fluff" and thicken.
5. Transfer frosting to a medium bowl and allow to come to room temperature.
6. Add your coconut and pecans.
