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.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



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

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

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

Excellent Brownies

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.

Brownies With Coconut Frosting

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.
