  • Prepare the coconut layer, by melting the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add all the ingredients. Keep stirring until it is bubbly and thick.
  • Let the brownies and the coconut mixture cool to room temperature, then pour the coconut mixture over the brownies.

These are neither "cake" brownies nor "fudge" brownies; they fall somewhere in between. So if you need one or the other then this brownies are not for you, you better use your own recipe and go on from there.
Do not use a mixer as we do not want the batter to be overmixed, a spoon is just enough for it.
