The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Coconut Stuffed Brownies (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Flour – all-purpose flour works well for this easy brownie recipe.
  • Cocoa powder – use regular unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Salt
  • Granulated sugar
  • Butter – we use salted butter and melt it then allow the butter to cool down a bit before adding to the batter.
  • Eggs – large eggs are just the right size for making these homemade brownies.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips – regular size chocolate chips can also work in this recipe, but be sure to use semi-sweet or dark chocolate as milk chocolate chips may burn while the brownies bake.
  • Sweetened coconut flakes – unsweetened can be used in place of sweetened coconut.
  • Sweetened condensed milk – this thick, sweet milk mixed with the coconut creates the delicious filling.

In a mixing small bowl, stir together the mini chocolate chips and the teaspoon of flour and set aside. The flour helps the chocolate chips blend into the batter better and not sink to the bottom of the brownies.

In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, then spread half of the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish.
