These saucepan brownies capture the rich flavor of a favorite cake with a few easy steps. Broiling the sweet coconut topping makes it goey and good. —Karen Grimes, Stephens City, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2014

These are so good! I agree with others that the brownie part is a little on the dry side (I cooked for only 15 mins exactly) but that's doesn't bother me much, they are more cakey than fudgey, but I might try just putting the topping on my usual brownie recipe next time though because I don't have to buy German chocolate for that either.

Very quick and easy to make. The taste is awesome. Perfect as a gift during the holiday season.

MY REVIEW

I agree, the flavor of these is wonderful but the brownie turned out pretty dry. I think next time I will underbake them before I add the topping, so when I put them back in to broil they won't overcook and dry out. I'm pretty sure thats what happened because it took much longer than 5 minutes on broil for my topping to cook right. Still the flavor was amazing, and I ate them with vanilla ice cream to counter-act the dryness of the brownie!

These are good. My only complaint is that I would prefer the base to be a little more moist.
