Saturday Recipe German Brownie Torte

I have not actually tried this yet. Matter of fact I just found it in a Woman's Day magazine, but it sounds so good. This is something I could make for Thanksgiving rather than the same old pie all the time.

German Brownie Torte:

1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans, or any nut you like I will probably use honey roasted peanuts
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 box chewy fudge brownie mix
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup confectioners sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15x10 in rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty foil, letting foil extend above pan on both ends. Coat with nonstick spray.

Mix coconut, pecans, brown sugar, and butter in a bowl until well blended, set aside. Prepare brownie mix as package directs for cake like brownies. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Top with coconut mixture.

Bake 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan, on a wire rack.

Now this part sounds a little complicated to me. Lift foil by ends onto a cutting board. Cut brownie crosswise in thirds. Beat cream, and confectioner's sugar in a bowl with mixer on med high speed until moist, stiff peaks from when beaters are lifted.

Assemble- Place one brownie layer, nut side up, on a serving platter. Spread top with 1 cup whipped cream. Repeat with remaining layers and cream, ending with cake. Frost sides with remaining cream. Refrigerate at least two hours.

Serving- Cut with a serrated knife in one inch slices, cut each slice in half.

I can not wait to try this.
