Chocolate Coconut Brownies (Easy Microwave Fix)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 9 mins

This recipe is another sweet treat from *Microwave Cooking* by Lorna Rhodes & is sadly the final recipe I’ll be entering from this nifty cookbook. The intro boasts that “These are so quick that you can make them within minutes of your children arriving home w/friends.” That promise & how good they looked in the pic made a believer out of me (Time does not include 10 minute standing time). *Enjoy* !

This worked for me but I did reduce cooking time by half after reading previous review - after all there is endless variation between microwaves - any way I had success and even frosted mine and the children swarmed in and ate the lot !!! Thanks Twis !!!

We didn't rate any stars as we cooked for the time stated, and they burnt. We have an 800 watt microwave. The only thing we did different was to use regular shredded coconut instead of desicated. We tasted the part that wasn't burnt, and unfortunately it was flavorless and quite bland. Sorry, Twissis, something just wasn't right.
