CRISPY RATING: My favorite brownie - chewie and soft

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup light butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract, or 3 tsp vanilla total instead
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut, flaked
  • 1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, optional
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

1. Melt butter over low heat, then remove. Add 2 cup sugar and beat. Add eggs and vanilla and blend. Mix in flour, cocoa, salt. Stir in coconut.

2. Pour into greased 13x9" pan.

3. Sprinkle remaining ingredients over top.

4. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Do not overcook.

MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:

1. These are wonderful brownies - soft and chewy. The coconut adds great flavor and texture.

2. Points will vary, depending how big you make 'em. I usually go with no nuts and make 24 of them:
With NO Nuts:
36 servings = 2 pts each
20 or 24 servings = 4 pts each
16 servings = 5 pts each

With Nuts:
36 servings = 3 pts each
24 servings = 4 pts each
20 servings = 5 pts each
16 servings = 6 pts each
