Made tonight with a 9 x 13" brownie box mix. I did add a layer of fresh raspberries from our garden like one reader suggested. Turn out nicely. I did have to bake about 5 to 8 mins longer than recipe said.
I loved this recipe... I brought this to a family dinner and they were gobbled up in a flash. We served them with vanilla ice cream. I had to bake it a little longer. I also left out the peanut butter chip because I didn't have them. Next time I think I will spread raspberry jam over the brownie mixture before add ing the coconut, chips and condensed milk.... and aslo add white chocolate chips.... but only becasue I can't help but think of a thousand other ways you could make this!
The directions were not real clear. I put the butter in with the brownie mix (powder) and then went on to read "Pour into 9x12" well it wasn't pourable so I figured I was supposed to mix the brownie mix as directed on the box first....so I did but the butter was already in there and I was a little hesitant because I had added the oil from the brownie directions and so now I had butter and oil..oh my :) So......I went on with the recipe as written (using walnuts instead of pecans) and cooked it for 30 minutes..it was still really jiggly so I cooked it for a total of 20 more minutes. Don't get me wrong this tasted really good and RICH..the boys ate it up. Next time I will omit some of the butter and some of the oil. Made for PAC spring '09
I had some trouble with the crust. It seemed way too dry and would not hold together at all so I added more butter. Then it baked up really hard. Is there an egg missing? I think I should have added it like the other reviewer. The top layer was great, I just wish the crust turned out better...more like a brownie.
Just wonderful. Tastes more like candy than a brownie...no tastes more like a brownie than candy....It doesn't really matter, they were gone in a flash. Thnx for posting. Adopted for Spring 2008 PAC.
Yum Yum!! I made these yesterday and they were fantastic!! I added an egg to the brownie mix and butter and omitted the pecans. I also baked this in an 8x11 pan so I had to bake them 35 minutes. Thanks for this delicious recipe!!
I seem to have zeroed in on several of your recipes! What can I say ~ "You do good in the kitchen!" I'm a chocolate lover & always enjoy trying new brownie recipes! This one is really OUTSTANDING in my book, & I'll be making it again [not often, but again, what with the calories from fat]! Thanks so much for sharing!
