It’s What’s Cookin’? Wednesday!
There has been a recipe floating around on Facebook recently that I just had to try. Personally, I’m more of an Almond Joy fan, but coconut surrounded by chocolate is always a winner no matter what you call it!
Actually, the version I made tasted more like an Almond Joy brownie (without the almonds!) because I used milk chocolate frosting, instead of dark chocolate, because that’s what I already had on hand.
The recipe calls for a Family Size box of brownie mix… I don’t know how anyone else’s brownies turn out, but whenever I bake them in a 9×13 pan (per the box instructions)… they always seem to be too thin, so I usually just bake them in a 9×9 pan- for 5 minutes less than the recommended baking time, and they come out fudgy and perfect each and every time!
For this recipe, I did use the 9×13 pan, but next time I’ll try the smaller one. One change I had to make was the amount of frosting- I thought I had a nearly full container in the fridge, but it turned out to be only half full (it’s been a REALLY long summer!). In my opinion, that was “just enough” topping for this delicious dessert!
Soooooooo….. if you like either of those candy bars, then you will LOVE these brownies… I know MY family did 😉
The filling really does taste like the candy bar… the chocolate brownies are just an added BONUS!
Oh, and to my family: Guess what I’m bringing to the family reunion this weekend 😉
