Comments Sue G. of Columbus, Wisconsin, “Around Christmas, I make a few alternative treats to help the cookies last longer. I give my brownies a holiday taste by stirring in crushed peppermint candy. We love them.”
Although I enjoy sweets, other recipes have failed me (I'm a beginning baker). But not this one! It's easy, and the ingredients are always on hand. Even my boyfriend, who doesn't like most sweets, can't pass these brownies.
My family enjoys the combination of chocolate and coconut. So I stirred coconut extract into brownie batter and added flaked coconut to the cream cheese filling. These fudgy bars are the tasty result!
