Brownies topped with coconut and chocolate

I love Mounds (and Almond Joy!) and I LOVE brownies…  so putting them together was bound to happen eventually!

You can make brownies from scratch or just use a boxed mix to speed this up!  Either way, they are delicious and they do freeze beautifully!   If you have extra topping left over, it keeps well in the fridge and can be reheated on 50% power in the microwave.

  • Prepare brownies according to box directions
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.. Lightly grease a 9×9 pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, & vanilla. Beat in the eggs.
  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, & salt. Add a little at time to the egg mixture just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake about 22-26 minutes or just until done (do not over bake). Remove and cool.
Mounds Coconut Layer
  • Combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut and powdered sugar in a bowl until well mixed. Spread over cooled brownies.
  • Bring heavy cream and butter just to a boil. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit 4 minutes without stirring. Stir until completely combined.
  • Pour over the coconut layer. Let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes (this keeps the topping shiny). Refrigerate to set.
