Mmmm. Chocolatey, chewy, coconutty goodness. Since I only made a half batch of the macaroons the other night, I wanted to make something with the remaining coconut. I decided on brownies because a) I had the ingredients on hand and b) there was no need to make anything additional, like a frosting or filling which I would have to do for a cake or pie.
I decided to go to the source of my cocoa: Hershey’s. I used this recipe for cocoa coconut brownies, but added 6 Tbsp chopped walnuts–1/4 cup for the batter and the remaining 2 Tbsp. for the top. These would be great with slivered almonds (kind of like an Almond Joy).
