Ingredients

Brownies

  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Topping

  • 3 cups shredded coconut sweetened or unsweetened
  • 300 ml can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13" pan with parchment and grease lightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine butter and sugar and whisk until combined. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla.
  • Add the cocoa, flour, salt and baking powder and whisk just until combined.
  • Spread into prepared pan and bake for 25-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the middle comes out clean or with moist crumbs.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • In a medium bowl, combine coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and powdered sugar. Use a wet spatula or wet fingers to spread coconut mixture over browns. Place almonds evenly over coconut mixture (
  • Melt chocolate chips and butter in a small bowl in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring each time until smooth. It should take 40-60 seconds total.
  • Pour chocolate over coconut layer and spread evenly. Allow to set completely before slicing -- place in the fridge to chill even quicker!
