Spray an 8-inch x 8-inch (20 x 20 x 5 cm) pan with cooking spray. Or grease with margarine.

This not so dark recipe should satisfy milk chocolate lovers. My mother, the milk chocolate and german chocolate cake fan, loved them.

Makes a very rich and gooey chocolate dessert.

The brownies might be a little on the sweet side for dark chocolate fans. But they make a nice change.

German chocolate brownies are an easy way to savor the flavor of the cake without the work. Looks great on the plate, too. That frosting gives the brownies a festive look. Might be just right for your next party. Bake a batch from scratch.
