I have been brainstorming an amazing coconut treat for awhile. See I was given a sample of Kelapo Virgin Coconut Oil awhile ago, but it’s taken me a few weeks to decide exactly how I’d like to use it. After I opened the jar and took a whiff I felt like I was holding some exotic delicacy and I didn’t want to waste a drop. I wanted to use it in a recipe that already contained coconut so I could enhance the flavors and make it even coconut-ier. (It’s a word I swear.) I thought brownies would be a good thing because using oil instead of butter wouldn’t make too much of a difference. I found a great recipe and made a couple minor changes- viola- my new favorite.
These were hands down the best brownie I’ve made. I brought them into my acting class and many people said it was the best brownie they’ve tasted. If you love coconut- you just may agree! The bar consists of a thin layer of brownie, a layer of coconut cream cheese filling, and another layer of brownie. (I am aware that in this picture the bottom brownie layer is lost, more on that later.)
