I’ve never met a brownie I didn’t like. You can even soak a burned brownie in milk and it’s still awesome. So adding more deliciousness to the top of a brownie? I’m totally on board with that. They’re chocolatey and gooey and so full of awesome that if you try to bake a batch to gift to neighbors, you should probably bake a second batch just for you.
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 egg whites
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place an overhanging piece of parchment paper in the bottom of an 8×8 baking pan and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine butter, cocoa powder, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Slowly add in flour and mix just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and then pour into prepared pan, smoothing evenly and set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, mix all topping ingredients until well combined. Spread topping over brownie batter. Bake 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. One cooled, lift the parchment paper to remove the dessert from the pan. Transfer to a large cutting board, remove paper and slice into bars. Enjoy.
