On the outside, these look like traditional brownies. When people bite in, though, are they surprised! It's almost like eating a rich filled chocolate candy. My husband and I are both teachers. We have two children, 7 and 3.

My husband and I have two sons and I sent these brownies to them regularly when they were in college. They told me that they used to hide a few from their roommates just to make sure there would be some left! —Patsy Burgin, Lebanon, Indiana

When our two grown children were at home, I baked these brownies often. These days, I make them for big occasions—everyone thinks that they're quite nice. As a bonus, they're a good way to use up leftover sour cream.

One of the best things about this recipe is that the brownies get moister if you leave them in the refrigerator for a day or two. The problem at our house is no one can leave them alone for that long! —Helen Baines, Elkton, Maryland

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.

For Christmas one year, a friend gave us a pan of these delicious brownies. Before I figured out their secret was cinnamon, half the pan was already gone! My husband designed the house we live in...our children are 12 and 10.

Whenever I take these to a gathering, someone will usually announce. "Lisa brought those brownies"—and everyone knows exactly which ones they are! We live on 10-1/2 acres out in the country with our daughters, 7 and 4.

Generally, I'll make a double recipe of these brownies—they go so fast no matter where I take them! I've baked them for family dinners and church suppers, and never had any left over. They're very easy besides plus both keep and freeze well. I've been cooking since I was 10. My husband is retired, and we have four grown children.

Even as a young girl, I was always going through recipe books in search of something new to make. That's how I came across these brownies, a favorite for our family reunions and other get-togethers. They 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

To tell the truth, I'm not a "chocoholic". I enjoy fruit desserts and custards more than anything. So my brownies have neither milk nor dark chocolate—but still satisfy every sweet tooth. Though my husband and I live in a townhouse, I grow lots of vegetables...in containers on our back deck!

The first time I took these brownies to work, I knew I'd better start making copies of the recipe—they disappeared fast! My husband and kids gobble them up quickly, too. —Pat Mueller, Mitchell, South Dakota
