I created this recipe when I wanted to make peanut butter M&M'S® brownies, but we didn't have the M&M'S®. It turned out to be a very decadent Mounds® bar-like brownie. These are best served warm with a big glass of milk and your favorite TV show.

  • Combine canola oil and 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a saucepan over very low heat; stir until melted, about 5 minutes. Let cool, about 5 minutes.

  • Beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until blended. Fold in melted chocolate mixture. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until well combined. Fold 1 1/2 cup shredded coconut and chocolate chips into the batter.

  • Spread batter in the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup shredded coconut on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges pull away from the sides of the pan, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool before cutting into squares, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute vegetable oil for the canola oil if desired.

I followed the recipe as written and I didn't think they tasted anything like a Mounds Bar or even reminiscent to one. They were a bit chewy a bit on the dry side. Just didn't care for them. Read More

They are brownies so they can't be "bad". However I wasn't very impressed. The coconut flavor wasn't very strong. I had to cook them longer than the recipe stated. Read More
