Coconut Stuffed Brownies

I love brownies and I really love coconut. I don't just love coconut, I am obsessed with it. My friend Katie and I always talk about how much we love coconut and anytime we find something good with coconut in it, we always share with each other what that something is. For instance at our job, HomeGoods, we sometimes get in these toasted coconut chips, and let me just say they are to die for. The only down side to these chips is that because they are so good they fly off the shelves in no time. Lucky for us I found them at Savemart, which I told Katie about right away, so now we can have those delicious coconut chips anytime we like. We did get even luckier when the came into our store a couple of weeks ago.
Well anyways let me get to the coconut stuffed brownies. The other day I was sitting at home pondering on different things I should make. Since I was really craving coconut and chocolate brownies, I knew I wanted to do something dealing with those two ingredients. So I got to thinking, why don't I make coconut stuffed brownies. I didn't know how they were going to turn out because I have never made them before, but I gave it a try and they came out tasting amazing. They would have probably come out tasting even better if I made the brownies from scratch, but I used a boxed brownie mix instead to make it easier on myself. When it came to the coconut filling I got the recipe from the chocolate macaroon cake that my mom and I make ( you can find the recipe for the cake on her blog. I have yet to make it for my blog, but I plan on making it real soon). So if you love coconut and brownies and think that the two combined sound amazing, then I highly suggest you make these things yourself real soon. :)
Coconut stuffed Brownies
1 boxed brownie mix ( and the ingredients listed on the package)
2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
1 3/4 cups shredded coconut
Preheat the oven and prepare the brownie mix according to package. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and salt until foamy.Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture forms stiff peaks. Blend in flour and coconut. Pour half of the prepared brownie batter into a greased baking pan. Spread the coconut mixture on top of the brownie batter. Pour the remaining half of the brownie batter on top of the coconut mixture, making sure all the coconut mixture is covered. Bake according to the package directions or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve and enjoy. :)

  1. Oooohh, those sound decadent. Sounds like you had a winner of an idea. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your brownies up.

  2. Oh they were delicious! Now that you have the coconut filling recipe part up, I might just have to make some myself, sounds pretty easy! The other day I was looking for some toppings to put on my ice cream and I was looking around in the pantry and found some shredded coconut. Lets just say I dumped a whole lot of coconut on my ice cream haha. It was good though!
