  • Melt butter in a large saucepan. Remove saucepan from heat and stir white sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract into the melted butter until thoroughly combined.

  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder together in a large mixing bowl; add butter mixture to the flour mixture and stir to form a smooth batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely.

  • Beat coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and confectioners' sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer until very thick; spread over the cake in an even layer.

  • Heat prepared frosting in the microwave until the frosting has a pourable consistency, about 75 seconds; pour over the cake and spread into an even layer. Refrigerate cake until the frosting is set, at least 15 minutes.

Oh Huey59 how could you? Right now during swimsuit season! This is very decadent. The cake is more like a brownie and the whole thing tastes very much like the candy bar. I made the recipe exactly as written the only change I might make in the future is the make the coconut layer a little creamier instead of so dry but it's still delicious. Thank you for the recipe I will add this to my permanent recipe box. Read More

Oh yum yum and yum! So sweet and so rich but delicious. We just loved this. It is more of a brownie but it soaks up all the lovely of the cocount mixture. Worth the calories every single bite! Read More

This was great. A big hit. It is really a brownie and not a cake though. Also I put a layer of chocolate ganache on top instead of canned or packaged frosting. Why make a cake from scratch and not the frosting? Read More

My son absolutely loves this cake. Don't make the mistake I did by adding some cream to the coconut mixture. I got worried when one reviewer called it dry. Mine slides off the cake. Still tastes great. The cake part is decadent. A real treat. Read More

So i made this except i made my own fudge frosting. They are really rich! Also I would leave in the fridge longer than 15 minutes. The concept is great! They taste fantastic. My family really enjoyed them. They took about an hour to make. Thank you for the recipe! Read More
