These decadent brownies have a delicious layer of coconut sandwiched between two chocolate layers. They were requested at a political campaign, at a social party and at my fiftieth anniversary.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • 4 cups unsweetened flaked coconut

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Combine the flour, cream of tartar and cocoa; stir into the egg mixture until well blended. Fold in walnuts. Spread half of this mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

  3. Make the middle layer. In a medium bowl, stir together the coconut, sweetened condensed milk and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Carefully layer this over the chocolate layer in the pan. Top with the remaining chocolate batter. Spread to cover evenly.

  4. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until top is no longer shiny. Cool in the pan before cutting into bars.
