Brownie Choco-Attack!

6 Jul

Rocky Road Brownies

So every so often I get a choco-attack and I find myself craving brownies.  Now there are many brownie recipes out there, but I have to say that hands down, my favorite recipe is the Coconut Macaroon brownies from Jiffy.  I learned about this recipe one day as I was in the supermarket and I happened across is on the “Jiffy” Brownie box. Being a person that loves to cook does not magically make you the ultimate recipe index.  Yes we can come up with some interesting and tasty things on our own, but we have to admit that not every great recipe that we use is just from our wonderful imagination. We get recipes from a vast array of family members, friends, books, websites, television shows…need I go on?  I’m just saying, this Jiffy recipe is awesome, and I cannot take any of the credit.  I am just going to pass it along to you in hopes that you will love it as much as I do.

Brownies

  • 3 pkgs. “JIFFY” Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 3 eggs

Topping

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped almonds

Glaze

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp. oil

Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease a 13″x9″ baking pan.

Combine brownie ingredients and blend well. Spread into prepared pan. In separate bowl, mix together cream cheese, sugar, flour and eggs. Beat until smooth. Stir in coconut and almonds. Drop cream cheese mixture by spoonful over brownie batter; spread evenly. Bake 45-48 minutes until center is firm to the touch; cool. Combine glaze ingredients; microwave on high for approximately 1 minute stirring every 20-30 seconds. Drizzle over brownies.  Cool and cut.

This recipe yields about 24-30 brownies.

*Just a little tid bit, I do add about ¼ cup of marshmallows to this recipe. You can try that too.*

Here are some brownie variations that I found…

Caramel Pecan Brownies

Irish Mint Brownies

Cream Cheese Brownies

Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

S'mores Brownie

Mmm take a bite out of that!

      Jesse I have a special weakness for brownies. As fat as this may sound, I had a dream about brownies last night. Hahahaha, I’m laughing, but it’s true. SMH
