Coconut Mounds Brownies

One of my girls is a huge coconut fan, and loves anything with chocolate and coconut together. Because of that, I’m always on the lookout for recipes she’ll like. What a huge hit! Everyone loved them, and they’re definitely on our favorites list.

You can choose if you want to use a brownie mix for a super quick dessert, or use your own favorite brownie recipe. I often use a brownie mix (Ghirardelli is my favorite), because they’re a little more dense and less fudgy than my go-to homemade recipe. I think this brownie needs that to hold up to the filling and frosting. You can definitely still use whatever you like best!

This is enough filling and frosting to cover a 9×9 pan of brownies. If you need to cover a 9×13 pan, you can 1 1/2 the recipe. I prefer using glass baking dishes, but if you use one, you may need to add a few extra minutes to the baking time. Watch it closely!
