OH MY GOSH!! These are sooo good. My family gave 2 big thumbs up for these brownies. Chocolate, coconut, and almonds...what more could anyone want. The only change I made was to use milk chocolate chips instead of the semi-sweet (just a personal preference). I will definitely be making these again and again. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
