Double Decker Coconut Cream Brownies

Coconut Cream Brownies  @Backforseconds  #brownies #coconut #frosting
There are two kinds of people in this world:
Sweet dessert lovers
and
Rich dessert lovers
I am the latter.
Brownies are my weakness. There I said it. Now don’t go using it against me!
You can wave lollipops and candy corn in front of me for as long as you want, I won’t take ‘em. Too sweet for me.
But put a plate of rich fudgy brownies nearby and I’m in trouble. And you’re out of luck, because I just ate your brownie ;)

These are my favorite brownies on the planet. I have never tasted one that I like better. I make them all the time, but this time, I wanted to add a little something. Frosting. Coconut frosting.
I went a little overboard when piping the coconut goodness on this particular brownie. It seemed the frosting to brownie ratio was a bit off. No big deal, just add another brownie!
Ahhh, perfect!

by: Back For Seconds

For the brownies:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
For the frosting:
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 3-6 Tbs coconut milk
  • shredded coconut for garnish (if desired)
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350*
In a large microwave safe bowl melt the butter and stir in the cocoa until well incorporated. Add in the sugar, vanilla, salt and eggs, stirring well with a wooden spoon after each egg addition. Slowly stir in the flour until well blended and smooth. Pour into a greased 9×13″ pan and bake for 22-24 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Do not over bake, you want these nice and fudgy! Let cool before frosting.

    I love candy corn, lollipops, bubblegum, and gummi worms. But these brownies… oh man. When I need something rich, a brownie like this is what gets me through the day. Coconut milk must make that frosting unbelievably creamy. :)

    My problem is that I like both sweet and rich. =) Brownies are definitely one of my favorites, though! And with coconut?? Man, oh man, this looks amazing!!

    OMG. I {puffy heart} brownies. Majorly. They’re one of my weaknesses, even though I like blondies a teensy bit better. But then you had to go and add COCONUT to the mix, and coconut is just the best thing evah. I will fight you for that last brownie!! :)

No wonder we’re such good friends :) these look AMAZING and I love your smarty tip about adding another brownie to that huge pile of frosting on top of that fudgey pillow of amazingness. Can you say Almond Joy brownie sandwich?! I {puffy heart} you and these gorgeous brownies!

    I’m a sweet dessert lover but these brownies look amazing! And I like that the coconut flavor comes from the milk, I’m not a fan of shredded coconut’s texture but I do like the flavor :)

      The only thing I can think of is that you over baked them. Every oven is different, so cooking times can vary. These are very moist fudgy brownies, so if you are sure you didn’t leave anything out, I’d say you just baked them too long. I hope next time they are perfect :)
