Coconut Brownies










Sometimes I just have to have coconut! Add almonds for an Almond Joy kinda Brownie!



1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter








4 ounces semisweechocolate, chopped

1/2 c chopped nuts ( I used pecans because I like them)

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 sm can sweet condensed milk
1 1/2c sweetened flaked coconut
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.






Line an 8 by 8-inch pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang. Spray with nonstick spray.
Mix coconut and condensed milk - set aside.
Melt butter and chocolate in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat stirring constantly.
Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in the sugar, eggs, salt, and vanilla extract together. Whisk until smooth. Add the flour and stir until thoroughly combined. Pour half of brownie batter into pan. Pour coconut mixture over brownie layer, then carefully pour the rest of brownie batter over coconut layer.
Bake for 30 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and let cool completely on wire rack. Cut into squares.
You can use a box of Brownie mix if you want to save time. :)
Enjoy! Join the party @
