Brownies With Coconut Frosting have a creamy white layer of frosting. A quick turn under the broiler just toasts the coconut adding extra eye appeal. It's amazing what a difference a little broiling makes in this simple and delicious dessert.

    YUMMY!!!

    Tracy Brooks from Cheyenne, WY

    I LOVE Brownies and this is the best recipe ever!! I took this dessert to a potluck at work and they were all gone before I got to get one. Everyone loved them and knew they weren't the box kind. I even did a half of batch without the coconuts on top. No more store bought box mixes!

    Simply Sinful

    KEIAVA ALKIRE from ANAHEIM, CA

    This has got to be one of the best treats I have ever tasted. It was easy to make and had all my favorite cravings. Chocolate, coconut, and brownies. I added white chocolate morsels to the brownies. Yummmmmmm.

    Love That Coconut

    Patricia McLean from Dallas, TX

    Easy to make and very tasty. My family absolutely loves coconut and this recipe is a keeper.

    Excellent Brownies

    Jayna Hamons from LORENA, TX

    For someone who considers herself to be a connoisseur of brownies, I have tons of brownie recipes. That's what everyone expects me to bring to family gatherings - my most recent brownie "find". This one has to rate right up there close to the top. And I prefer my brownies un-iced; this recipe is the exception to that rule - the icing makes this brownie. Definitely a keeper.

    We tried this recipe and it is soooooo good. It's easy to make and maintains flavor for several days, if they last that long.

    Brownies for Coconut Lovers

    Barb Buckner from HARRISON, OH

    If you love coconut, you will love these brownies. My husband does not care for brownies, but when you add the coconut frosting even he can't pass them up. They are incredibly easy to make. Also, a great item to take to an event. Can't wait to make the next batch.

    brownies w/coconut frosting

    Debbie Hosier from MARION, NY

    The brownies were good, but the frosting is VERY sweet! A little goes a long way especially if you don't have a big sweet tooth.

    Created a stir

    Cynthia McCloud from TERRA ALTA, WV

    I like that this recipe is mixed in one pan so you dirty only a spoon, pan and baking dish. I made it for family gatherings around the Fourth of July and even people who don't normally like coconut ate it and loved it. It is incredibly rich and fudgy and practically melts in your mouth. It freezes well and is delicious cold. I'll add this to my Christmas cookie tray, too.

    Yummy

    Jayme Simoneau from Johnston, RI

    I used the frosting part of this recipe to go with a banana cake that I made. It was quick and easy, and complimented the bananas very well. Gave it a nice tropical twist.

    Scrumptious Brownies

    Lynne Latella from PATTERSONVILLE, NY

    Everyone loved this recipe. It's a little like German chocolate cake, but richer and more tender. The broiling highlights the coconut and gives the brownies an interesting and different flavor. Yum!

    Not my favorite

    Susan LeDrew from ORLANDO, FL

    It tasted good but it doesn't stay fresh for long. I may make it again if I have a potluck to attend.

    Brownies with Coconut Frosting

    Pat Hadley from MIDLAND, TX

    WOW!! These are easy and great. My husband loves german chocolate cake and this hits the spot for that without all the fuss. My only complaint is the amount of b. sugar in the topping, I may cut back on that a little. Other than having to make sure we keep hitting the gym, I know we will make this a regular treat at our house.
