Hello Lovelies! I have a batch of Lacy Coconut-Topped Brownies in my oven. What's going on in your kitchen today? Can I come over for a bit of lunch? If so, I will share with you my brownies! I rather think that's a good deal considering these brownies are heavenly with a chewy golden brown macaroon topping. Just like a candy bar....only better! Who doesn't enjoy a candy bar now and then? My favorite is Milky Way. What's yours?
Lacy Coconut-Topped Brownies
Yields 25 servings
For the Topping
1 large egg white
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp pure vanilla
Large pinch of salt (1/16 tsp.)
For the Brownie Layer
8 Tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs, cold
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
Line a 9-inch square pan with foil.
To Make the Macaroon Topping
To Make the Brownie Layer
Place the butter and chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl and set it in the skillet of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until melted and smooth and hot enough that you want to remove your finger fairly quickly after dipping it in to test.

Confession: I used Tastefully Simple Truffle Brownie boxed mix. I'm trying to use up items in my pantry. If you don't like it, I won't share my brownies. In fact, cancel my coming over for lunch. I'm bringing these to a friends house later tonight. Next time maybe you won't be such a boxed brownie snob!
