A few days ago my neighbor brought over a 10 lb. bar of milk chocolate, I think that the only logical response to that is some truly delicious brownies. You've already seen my recipe for healthy brownies and now its time for something a little more decadent.

  • 2 cups milk chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
Coconut Topping (optional)
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 6 tbsp butter

  1. Preheat oven to 325°
  2. Melt chocolate and butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat

3. Remove from heat after everything is melted and throughly incorporated

4. Whisk both sugars into the chocolate mix. 
5. Add in eggs, one at a time and then add vanilla. Whisk until combined.Stir in flour and salt until evenly incorporated and pour into 
7.Stir in flour and salt until evenly incorporated and pour batter into prepared pan.
8. Line a 9x13 baking pan with aluminum foil completely and spray generously with cooking spray.
9. Bake 25 minutes. While they are baking make coconut topping. If you opt out of adding the coconut then bake for 35 minutes. 
For the topping
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. 
  2. Boil for 5 minutes until sugar is dissolved and mixture is slightly thickened.
  3. Set aside until brownies are done with the first 25 minutes of baking.
  4. When brownies are done with the first half, remove from oven and pour coconut mixture over partially baked brownies.
  5. Return to oven for 10-15 minutes until toothpick inserted 2 inches from edge comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
