How to make German Chocolate Brownie Cookies

To make the cookies:

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Using a parchment paper, line two large baking sheets and set aside.

Step 3: In a heatproof bowl, add the butter and 8 oz. semisweet chocolate. Melt over a saucepan of barely simmering water while occasionally stirring until smooth.

Step 4: In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla, and granulated sugar.

Step 5: Whisk in a bowl the flour and baking powder.

Step 6: Stir in the cooled melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until incorporated.

Step 7: Gradually add in the flour mixture. Mix until combined. You can leave the batter in the fridge if the batter turns out too thin to scoop out.

Step 8: On the prepared baking sheets, scoop about half a tbsp of batter 2-inches apart to give the cookies space to flatten while baking.

Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until firm on the outside. Do not overbake.

To make the topping:

Step 1: In a large saucepan, combine the evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolks, and butter. Cook on a stovetop for about 12 minutes over medium heat, stirring until the mixture has thickened.

Step 2: Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the vanilla, toasted coconut, and pecans. Allow the mixture to cool. Enough to spread over the cookies.

Step 3: Once the cookies are cooled, spread the topping and drizzle with melted chocolate.

Step 4: Store in an airtight container and place in the fridge.
