Coconut Cream Brownies


Browsing on Pinterest the other day, I was looking for a brownie recipe that was new and exciting and different.

I found approximately 297 I wanted to try right then, but instead decided to combine a couple of recipes I found and see how it went.

It went well. Really well. Quite tasty, even.

So here is what I came up with!

Ingredients – minus the powdered sugar because I’m a dork and forget to get it out when I took the photo.


Mix brownies according to package directions and pour half of batter into prepared baking pan.


Combine coconut, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended.


Spread on top of brownie batter.


Spoon remaining batter on top of coconut and bake until set – about 35 minutes at 350 degrees.


Pour frosting over brownies, top with almonds and enjoy!

Coconut Cream Brownies

1 box brownie mix

1 cup sweetened flake coconut

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 can chocolate frosting

sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix brownies according to package directions. Spread half of mix in a greased 8 1/2 x 14 baking pan. Mix coconut, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Spoon over brownie batter. Top with remaining batter and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until brownie batter is set. Do not over cook. You can take this out just before it seems quiet done and it should be perfect.

Let cool.

Microwave about 1/2 to 2/3 cup of the frosting for 10 seconds and pour over cooled brownies. Top with sliced almonds and serve.
