Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 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
- 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
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!
