  1. Prepare brownies according to box directions
OR
  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.

MOUNDS COCONUT LAYER

TOPPING
  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.
