- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp. light brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. Hiland Unsalted Butter (slice butter into 5 or 6 thin slices)
- 2 - 8 oz. pkgs. Shawnee Mills Fudge Brownie Mix
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/4 cup Neighbors Coffee (brewed/warm)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 - 3.5 oz. Bedre Chocolates OK Cow Patties (chopped)
- 4 tbsp. Hiland Unsalted Butter
- 2 oz. Braum's Cream Cheese
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa
Cookware: 8x8" baking pan*
Time: 43-46 minutes
Temp: 325 degrees
Servings: 12 servings
Preheat Oven to 325 degrees.
Spray or lightly oil the bottom of an 8x8" baking pan. Sprinkle coconut on the bottom of the pan, then sprinkle the brown sugar over the coconut. Place the thin slices of butter on top of the brown sugar, spacing them out. Place the pan in the 325 degree preheated oven and bake mixture for 6 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, stir mixture well and then spread the mixture out evenly. Place the pan back in the oven, for another 6 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven, stir the mixture and spread it out evenly again. Set aside to cool while preparing the second layer. (approx. 10 minutes to cool)
Place brownie mixes, oil, warm coffee, and eggs in a medium sized mixing bowl. Hand mix until moist. Add chopped cow patties and mix until well incorporated.
Pour brownie mixture onto the coconut mixture and spread out evenly. (It is easiest to place the brownie mixture in the middle of the pan and work it out to the edges, since the brownie mixture will be thick.) Place the pan aside while preparing the third layer.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter and cream cheese, stirring occasionally. (The cream cheese will not melt, but it will soften.) Once the butter melts and the cream cheese softens, add the powdered sugar and cocoa. Stir vigorously until the mixture resembles hot fudge sauce. Remove from heat.
While the cocoa mixture is still warm, spoon the mixture on top of the brownie mixture in 12 dollops. The dollops should be heaping tablespoons, evenly spaced - in a 3x4 grid design. These dollops will spread a bit as they sit, which is fine.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for 43-46 minutes, being sure not to over bake.
Allow to cool completely before serving. Makes 12 servings.
Best served with a cold glass of Braum's Milk or a warm cup of Neighbor’s Coffee.
