  • 1 package Fudge brownie mix + items to make it (according to directions)
  • 3 1/2 Cups Shredded coconut (toasted)
  • 2 14-ounce Packages of caramels (unwrapped)
  • 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons Milk
  • 3 ounces Semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Prepare fudge brownie mix according to package directions and cook according to package directions. Cool completely.
  • FOR THE TOPPING: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place coconut on a pie plate. Toast for 2-3 minutes, stirring coconut and continue to cook until toasted. Watch closely because it can burn quickly.
  • In a microwaveable bowl, add unwrapped caramels, salt, and milk. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally until all caramels are melted and smooth.
  • Add toasted coconut to the caramel mixture and stir. Spread mixture over cooled brownies and then refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  • Right before serving, heat semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwaveable bowl for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir completely until all chocolate is melted. Heat for a few seconds at a time, if needed. HINT: Do NOT overheat or the chocolate will become chunky instead of smooth. Drizzle over the top of the brownies and cut brownies into serving sizes and enjoy!
