Coconut Almond Brownies

As I was perusing my overflowing bookshelf of cookbooks the other day, my Pampered Chef Celebrate! book jumped out at me and I decided to take peek inside.  This particular recipe sounded so good that I just had to give it a try.  It was Monday and that means we have to have dessert.  Family Home Evening just isn’t complete without it.

I had all the ingredients on hand which made it even more appealing.  We all loved it!  We will definitely be making this one again.

Coconut Almond Brownies

  • 1 pkg brownie mix (13x9 size) plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies (usually you just add an extra egg)
  • 10 oz. sweetened flaked coconut (I had a 14 oz. pkg so I just used most, but not all of it)
  • 2 c. (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350*. 

Prepare brownies according to mix directions for cake-like brownies.  Spread into 13x9 pan and bake for 18-22 minutes or until brownie is set but not completely done. 

Sprinkle coconut on top of brownie and layer chocolate chips on top of that.  Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over coconut and chocolate.  Sprinkle almonds on top to taste.  You could omit the almonds but I recommend keeping them!

Bake 20-23 minutes or until coconut is browned around edges.  Let cool before cutting.

We decided that we might try butterscotch chips next time or maybe caramel sauce instead of the sweetened condensed milk.  These were delicious as is we just want to experiment!
