"These are great brownies, but they were not "fudgey (sp?)" but more like dense moist cake. Followed recipe exactly. Also, I took mine out of oven at 20 min and should have (maybe ?) even taken them out sooner so be sure to check early."

"I love coconut and chocolate. Thank you for such a simple and tasty recipe. I often bake brownies using a classic recipe, for example, such as this:

Now I will bake coconut brownies."

"Just made these and they are great! I found this recipe in one of the Taste of Home magazines (Brownies and Bars I think). Anyway, they had a tip in there to add chocolate chips. I added a half a cup of white chocolate chips and a half a cup of peanut butter and milk chocolate chips (combined). They turned out great! Will definitely make these again."
