Apparently most of you aren’t quilters. I’m assuming my tutorial yesterday didn’t go over very well because I only got one comment. Thanks Michelle, I always know I can count on you!! You are definitely my BFF!
To sooth my wounded ego, I am sharing something I know you all love. CHOCOLATE! These coconut macaroon brownies are absolutely decadent. Kind of like German chocolate cake inside out. (Although we actually prefer German chocolate brownies.) These were a huge hit at our house, especially with my husband. The gooey coconut middle is divine, and pairs nicely with the chocolate-y brownies. If you like chocolate and coconut, you’ve got to give these a try!
These Coconut Macaroon Brownies are decadent and delicious down to the last bite!

Coconut Macaroon Brownies

3/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt

4 cups coconut
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Mix butter, sugar, vanilla, and cocoa. Whisk in eggs till well blended. Stir in flour and salt. Spread half of batter in greased 9×13″ pan.  Combine all filling ingredients in a mixing bowl. Spread over the brownie batter. Drop remaining batter over filling in spoonfuls, then spread out. Bake at 350° for about 40-45 minutes. (I used a glass pan, so I baked at 325°.)

  5. Ok, I will admit it….I much prefer chocolate to sewing! LOL

    I read your post…but am defintely not a sewer!! I hate the sewing machine….with a passion. I’ve sewn pillows by HAND with a needle and thread rather than pulling at the stupid sewing machine. It’s all about the bobbin!! If someone would do that thing for me, every.single.time, I MIGHT be willing to sew. I stress….might. 😉

    But bake…yummo…I do that often!! Too often! LOL

    • I agree about the bobbin thing. That is always what frustrates me when sewing. And to be honest, sometimes I prefer to sew by hand as well. It’s relaxing to me. 😉

  6. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

  7. Oooh, these look delicious! I think I might try these! 🙂

  8. OMGosh- these look mouth wateringly divine! I so want to make these, but I’m the only one in the house that eats coconut. These look soooo good though- I don’t think I can resist them. Guess I better start excercising more!

  9. Oh these do look fantastic….LOVE both chocolate and coconut.
    Somehow I missed your post yesterday, but I too plan to flag this post – great idea!

  10. seriously? delish!

    my dad LOVES german chocolate cake and i am so excited to make these for him next time i go home!!! get it girl.

  11. That’s funny that you thought your last post was a flop because (even though I didn’t comment) I really really liked it. In fact I tagged it so I could use it in my weekend feature post. Its not often that you get to learn a completely new technique on a blog. No, I’m not much of a quilter but I REALLY want to be and if I ever get the guts to try, I will totally tie it this way. So thanks for sharing.

    P.S. I would have notified you of the feature once the post went up, so I guess this will be your shout out. It will probably post tomorrow if you want to check it out.

    P.S.S. These brownie’s look amazing. I love german chocolate so I’m sure I’d love these!

    P.S.S.S I actually featured your hawaiian haystacks last week but can’t remember if I told you. Hummmm… brain fart. Anyway, you can check that out too if you want.

    Love you!

  12. These look amazing! Can’t wait to try them.

  13. Those look fabulous!!

  14. I almost licked my screen when I saw these. YUM, cant wait to break out the mixer.

  15. YUMMY! Can’t wait to try!
