4 (1-ounce) unsweetened chocolate baking squares
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
How to Make It
Microwave chocolate squares in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 1/2 minutes, stirring at 30-second intervals until melted. Stir until smooth.
Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add melted chocolate, beating just until blended.
Add flour, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla and chocolate morsels. Spread batter into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan. Sprinkle batter evenly with coconut, 1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels, and chopped pecans. Drizzle evenly with sweetened condensed milk.
Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until golden brown and center is set. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into squares.
To easily remove and cut brownies, line the pan with greased and floured heavy-duty aluminum foil, allowing several inches to extend over sides. After baking and cooling, lift the block of brownies from the pan using the foil. Press the foil sides down, and cut.
I have made these brownies 3x with inconsistent results. I have been unable to find the magic baking time, for it certainly isn't the time given here. The top is always way too browned, the middle of the brownies way too mushy. The taste is okay, but texture is everything for me.
I am an experienced baker but got poor results with this recipe. Very gooey top, seems uncooked. Brownies did set up with refrigeration but don't know if they'll hold up on a cookie tray. Also I would omit chocolate chips in the brownie batter, it made them difficult to cut. Expensive recipe for so so results.
There's nothing light about these brownies..but OH MY! They are incredible! I took them to work and they were gobbled up in an hour; people were raving about them! Made an oops..put the full bag of chocolate chips in the batter instead of on top but hey you can never have too much chocolate. They came out great!
