Caramel, Coconut, Chocolate, and Pecans—Oh My, What a Brownie!
I like to take a standard brownie mix and jazz it up and make it my own. The recipe that follows is one of my best!
Caramel, Coconut, Chocolate, and Pecans
Oh My, What a Brownie!
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon coconut flavoring
1 box Ghiradelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips
25 Rolo Minis chocolate covered caramels
25 pecan halves
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray 9” baking pan with baking spray.
Whisk together egg, water, oil, and coconut flavoring. Add brownie mix and stir until well blended. Add chopped pecans, coconut and chocolate chips and stir until mixed in with brownie batter. Pour into baking pan and spread evenly. Bake 39-43 minutes. Do not over-bake.
Turn oven off. Place Rolo Minis upside-down in a 5 x 5 grid pattern over the baked brownies, pressing each one about half way into the brownie. Return to oven for about 3 minutes to allow caramel to melt. Remove from oven and place a pecan half on top of each Rolo.
Makes 25 scrumptious brownies!
