Coconut is an unusual addition to traditional brownies. More adult. Go great with a big mug of coffee.

Chewy, moist, chocolatey with a hint of coconut and very, very delicious! I am a chocolate and coconut fiend so when I saw the ingredients in this brownie, I knew I would have to make it! It is wonderful just as is and I would not dare change anything about this recipe. Thanks, Evelyn!
