Chocolatey Coconut Brownies

I love chocolate and coconut. It doesn’t matter how it’s combined, there is nothing like the two of them together…. and when you add coconut to and on brownies it’s a deliciously sweet treat! Goes great with a cup of strong black coffee!!!


Here are my ingredients.


In the bowl of my stand mixer, I combined the softened butter/margarine, egg, sugar and vanilla and mixed well.


Next I added the flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa and coconut into the egg/sugar mixture and mixed until it was really well combined.

I spread this mixture evenly into my prepared baking pan.


I baked it at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the edges were starting to brown and it was done in the middle.

I let the base cool while I made the icing.

For the icing, I whipped the icing sugar, butter/ margarine, hot water and cocoa together until smooth and fluffy.


I spread the icing evenly over the base….


And then sprinkled the second amount of coconut over the top.


And then cut it into squares, ready for a scrumptious treat!
