This is just a combination of other things that I’ve made married together in a perfect union of marital bliss!
First make a batch of these brownies and let them cool…
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup oil
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Stir together cocoa and soda. Add 1/3 cup oil. Stir in boiling water until thick. Add oil, eggs, and sugar. Then add flour, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Pour into lightly greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
While they are cooling, make a batch of coconut topping:
4 oz softened cream cheese
2 Tablespoons softened butter
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Beat the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the powdered sugar until it is smooth. Then mix in the coconut.
Spread the filling over the cooled brownies.
Melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 Tablespoon of shortening together and spread on top of coconut filling.
Cut into small squares (they’re pretty rich) and store any leftovers in fridge.
