Coconut Cream Topped Brownies.
Out of all the different brownie obsessions I’ve had, none have ever involved coconut.
It’s a sin I tell you. A sin.
I love chocolate and coconut flavors together, but I wasn’t sure how well chewy brownies would work out with shredded coconut.
If you are a coconut fan, you will absolutely love them.
If you are like Mr. How Sweet who would rather swallow nails than eat coconut, you can go hide in the corner, wimpering. That’s what he did.
It’s funny how two people have such different tastes. This is one of my dream brownies, while it’s his worst nightmare.
He’d probably only be truly happy with a steak-flavored brownie.
I’ll stick with the coconut cream. They may be my most favorite brownie yet.
Coconut Cream Topped Brownies
(you can use a homemade brownie recipe below or boxed brownies)
3 squares baking chocolate
1/2 lb butter
2 cups sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt butter and baking sqaures in a microwave safe bowl. In the mixing bowl, cream melted butter and chocolate mixture. Add in sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add in eggs, beating one at a time. Add flour and stir just until combined.
Pour into greased 9 x 13 baking dish (I used a 8 x 8 square cake pan). Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until just barely done. Cool before frosting.
Coconut Cream Pie Frosting
2 sticks butter, softened
1.5 – 2 lbs powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract
4 oz package Jello instead coconut cream pudding
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2-3 tablespoons coconut milk
toasted coconut for garnish
Cream butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar gradually and mix. Add in instant pudding mix. Mix until desired consistency, adding milk 1 tablespoon at a time. Frost brownies and top with toasted coconut.
I think I’ve exhausted all the delicious brownie flavors. I’m sure I could try something incredibly disgusting to most people, like adding my beloved gorgonzola or some form of bacon. As for now, I’m content.

I’m surprised these are your first coconut brownies!! They look so tasty!
Hope you’re still having fun on your trip. These look so yum to me. I love coconut in just about anything sweet!
Brownies don’t sound good now that I’m pregnant, but I can guarantee you after all my weird food aversions go away, I’ll be drooling over these.
These brownies look awesome! I will never understand why people don’t like coconut, especially when it’s all toasty like that. Yum!

I love coconut! I can’t wait to try these!
Yay! Coconut + brownies = heaven. Thanks Jessica!
I’ve never gone crazy over coconut, one of those things that I can take it or leave it, not feeling too strongly either way. These brownies though… I have a feeling that they could make me adore coconut!
yes PLEASE! i love your brownie recipes…sign me up!
butter makes everything taste better :) in the words of paula deen! these look so delicious, so sad that mr howsweet doesnt like them but hey, more for you!!
I think it’s amazing you can create this without a recipe. I have to have a recipe!
These brownies do look dreamy! In the past few years I have learned to love anything with coconut. And now I obsess over it!
I don’t even like coconut that much, but those brownies look delightful!!
I started really enjoying coconut last year and now I am hooked. These brownies could win me over any day! xo
WOW. I need those brownies in my life.
Yum! My husband loves coconut and would definitely be all about these :)
I love coconut so much!!! I am making these in my first week of summer holidays – they sound perfect to me!!!
I am drooling…I love anything with coconut!
ok, now this sounds like a friday night! me, the sofa and some of these brownies. love me some coconut!
Oh wow!! Chocolate and coconut is only second to chocolate and PB, and that’s a very close second. Love coconut!!
“Jello instead coconut cream pudding” = memories of my childhood! my mom and grandma could make anything out of jello pudding mix and cool whip. and an angelfood cake. They would win church rumage bake sales with their concoctions. I grew up in a polish/russian full fat dairy old school house with serious cooks. And i turned out raw vegan.
HAVE FUN this weekend!!!!!!
Coconut + chocolate = heavenly!
These brownies look so fabulous! I so have to try these:)
this looks AMAZING. I am going to try it this weekend. Ahhhhhh
Delicious. I made my first batch of topped brownies this past week. I had previously thought that brownies should be unadulterated with non-chocolate-y-ness or “frosting” of any kind. I was wrong. The idea is genius. I will most definitely be trying this combination out next!
These look lovely. I love coconut so I can imagine how delicious these are. It is so funny how your husband and you have such different tastes….oh well, all the more for you!
can you please open an online ordering service for all these sweets that you make? They always look so good and i always want to try them!! haha
I just love reading your blog, in fact so much that I have selected you to receive 2 blog awards over on my blog today. Keep up the great blog! All the best, Roz (aka bella)
What an amazing combination. They look great!
I’m just not a fan of any frosted brownies. I might use the coconut frosting on something else though it looks super yummy.
I love it! And you…the end.
I’m on and off with coconut, but these look great. Looks like I’ll have to pick up some coconut and give these a try.

These look absolutely Delicious!!! Great combination of flavors. I think i would eat the entire batch myself if i make these
These look So good! I do have a question though, hopefully not a silly one, but since this seems to be an older recipe, maybe before coconut milk became a milk substitute. Does this recipe call for regular coconut milk in a can or the kind you get in the dairy section?
