A Sweet Treat

A Sweet Treat

These Mounds bar brownies are just in time for Valentine’s Day! Or to give you that last little push to make it to Friday! 🙂

I know not everyone likes coconut (who are those people!? they’re cray!) but if you do, these will more than satisfy your sweet tooth cravings!

These are super simple to make. You can make your own brownie recipe, or do what I do and make the Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies. They are so fudgey (follow the directions for making them fudgier and less cake-y) and rich even on their own. While I make all my other desserts from scratch, brownies are the one thing I cheat on because I know any recipe I make just won’t compare to these!

Anyway, once the brownies are baked and cooled, you can make the coconut layer. Combine 2 packages of the 2 and 2/3 cup size Bakers coconut plus 1 cup of powdered sugar and a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk. Then spread it over the cooled brownies. This actually makes more coconut mixture then you need (unless you spread it on reallyyy thick) but I’ve yet to experiment with reducing the recipe for fear I won’t have enough!

Lastly, spread some chocolate frosting on top! You can make your own from scratch, but I’m also lazy with this recipe, and use the Duncan Hines Classic Chocolate frosting (no idea why it is so expensive on Amazon–it’s not that much at the store!) with no high fructose corn syrup added. You won’t use more than 1/4 to 1/2 of the can.

Then cut these up really small because they’re so sweet. Or don’t–I won’t judge!

I last made these during the blizzard a couple weekends ago because what’s better than being stuck inside and eating sweets until your belly hurts?? But these pics are actually from a different time I made them, because the photos looked better.

Enjoy!
