German Chocolate Fudge Cookies

German Chocolate Fudge Cookies: Dense and fudge like cookies, similar to a flourless cake, filled with semisweet chocolate, coconut, and pecans. Way more portable than cake. German Chocolate Fudge Cookies

I took one look at these German Chocolate Fudge Cookies and was like…nope.

Nope…those will not go on the blog.

They are seriously ugly and brown food is hard enough to photograph and these are even worse.

And then I tasted one.

Ah man, I have to share this recipe.

While I watched these bake I panicked. The original recipe had the cookies spreading out which mine did not do. Hmmm. I noticed that a few people on the original recipe made the same comment too.

Would squash them down next time I made them to help promote flattening them more as they baked.

So I’m not totally sure what I did.

Ugly is what I did.

But like I said, wow, these are good.

These cookies remind me of chocolate flourless cake.

Except there is flour.

Not a ton but it’s there.

Fudge like is definitely what to describe them as.

I didn’t toast the coconut because the frosting I grew up on for German Chocolate Cake did not have toasted coconut.

Same goes for the pecans. I did not toast those either.

Feel free to toast away if that is your preference.

If you have a German Chocolate fan in your house you totally need to make these for them. Ugly or not.
