  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Remove from the heat and cool for 10 minutes or more.

  • Combine cooled chocolate mixture, sugar, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Add eggs; mix well. Add flour mixture and stir until well combined. Spread batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set the oven to broil.

  • Combine brown sugar, melted butter, corn syrup, and milk for topping in a bowl. Stir in coconut and pecans. Drop and gently spread mixture evenly over the warm brownies.

  • Broil 4 inches from the heat until topping is bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes. Cool for 1 hour before slicing and serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use walnuts instead of pecans, if desired.
