Frosted German Chocolate Brownies

4 oz sweet chocolate, broken up
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs, at room
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
2 egg yolks from large eggs
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/2 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 inch square pan with foil, letting the ends extend above the pan on 2 sides. Lightly grease the foil.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Beat the butter and sugar in a medium size bowl with and electric mixer on high speed until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the melted chocolate and vanilla. Stir in the flour just until blended. Spread the batter in the lined pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a moist crumb. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

To make frosting:
Put the condensed milk, butter and egg yolks in a medium saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring to a simmer over medium low heat. Cook and stir 4 minutes or until thick as mayonnaise. Stir in the flaked coconut, chopped pecans and vanilla extract. Cool, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until thick enough to spread. Spread over the cooled brownie. Refrigerate about 30 minutes until the frosting is firm. Lift the foil by the ends and place on a cutting board. Cut the brownie into bars.
