German Chocolate Brownie Cake

This cake is actually a brownie mix and the frosting is store-bought, but the homemade coconut topping makes it taste like you made it all from scratch.
1 box brownie mix (I used Family Sized Duncan Hines Fudge Brownie Mix)
1 tub chocolate frosting
Coconut Topping:Align Center
3/4 cup evaporated milk
2/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
In a saucepan, bring milk, brown sugar and butter to a full boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in coconut and walnuts. cool.
Bake brownies according to package directions in appropriate sized pan (check box of brownie mix to determine size). Before baking, I line the pan with tinfoil and leave the edges hanging over so that I can easily remove and cut the brownies once they have cooled. Cool completely, remove from pan. Frost the entire thing like you are frosting a cake. Pour cooled coconut mixture in the center of the cake and spread out to the edges.
