Double Chocolate Coconut Brownies

Thanks to a head start from a mix, it's easy to bake up these crowd-pleasing treats. It's hard to stop at just one brownie, but don't worry—my recipe makes 30 servings! —Brenda Melancon, McComb, Mississippi

    These brownies are incredibly good! I needed a dessert for game day and had all of the ingredients on hand. Made exactly as written, except I followed the advice of some other reviewers and didn't mix the coconut and condensed milk; instead, after the first 20 minutes of baking, I sprinkled the coconut on top and then drizzled the condensed milk over the top. Baked about 24 minute longer and it came out perfect. The frosting was delicious and simple to put together. There are a few steps to the recipe, but the effort is well worth it. Served with some vanilla ice cream on the side. Everyone raved about these brownies, and I'll definitely be making them again!

    These were too rich for me and they are a lot of work.

    These are great! After reading the reviews I did sprinkle the coconut on then poured the condensed milk over top, and it came out perfectly - no mess. I would however try to line the pan next time as I had a devil of a time getting them out! But great recipe as is!!

    These brownies are yummy. As previous poster stated, spreading the coconut mixture on the partially baked brownies is almost impossible. Next time will try sprinkling coconut on first, then drizzling condensed milk over that and spreading it. Or, spreading condensed milk on brownies and sprinkling coconut over milk.

    I liked these brownies. They were really, really sweet! Like pure sugar. Beware when spreading the coconut mix onto the partially baked brownies. Since the brownies aren't set, and the coconut mix is so thick, it's kind of impossible to spread it on. I had to pick up globs of the coconut and try to distribute it throughout the brownies, since it just sank right down into the batter.

    This recipe is great and I know I'll be using this as an alternative to my other brownie recipes! I have a GOOD # of brownie recipes FROM TOH & the companion magazines which are GREAT-it's hard to choose! delowenstein

    I need feed back, loved this receipe but those bake times were way off. After the first 20 minutes the muddle was too soupy to put coconut on. Anyone have correct times?

    Rich, sweet, and delicious. I don't like coconut, so I omitted that, and its still yummy. The only problem is the sweetened condensed milk sticks to the pan.
