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.

  1. Prepare brownies according to box directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.. Lightly grease a 9×9 pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, & vanilla. Beat in the eggs.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake about 22-26 minutes or just until done (do not over bake). Remove and cool.
  1. Combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut and powdered sugar in a bowl until well mixed. Spread over cooled brownies.
  1. Bring heavy cream and butter just to a boil. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit 4 minutes without stirring. Stir until completely combined.
  2. Pour over the coconut layer. Let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes (this keeps the topping shiny). Refrigerate to set.

  1. Hi.. can I use hot fudge topping instead if chocolate chips? I don’t have the chocolate chips.

  2. I made this for a friend and of course have kept some for us. Husband said they were wicked. I left out the powdered sugar as the coconut flakes were sweetened. May be more chocolate topping if you are so inclined but otherwise, very nice.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  3. I found the recipe called for too much coconut. 4 cups or 3 and a half cups would probably be more accurate for a 9×9 pan. I had a large amount left over after piling it on top of the brownie. On the flip side, the topping barely covered the panscape. Maybe a more topping and less filling? I put the filling in the refrigerator for a future bake idea.

  4. I made these yesterday. Had some last night & decided that they were too sweet. Put the recipe in the recycle bin. Tonight, brought them out of the fridge for dessert. FRANTICALLY went through the recycle bin looking for the recipe. So much better after chilling overnight. OH MY!!!

  5. The recipe says to combine the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. But the list of ingredients doesn’t include salt. Is there salt in the batter? If so, how much?

  6. Oh my goodness Holly,
    Your Mounds Brownies look awesome! Thank you so much for sharing this special recipe with Full Plate Thursday and have a fantastic week!
