Barbie Bakes Mounds of Brownies

Strapless cotton floral with removable wrap.

Cut these into tiny pieces.  They are so rich—one bite is all you need.  (Page 172 in Chocolate Crimes.)


¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup (one stick) butter
1½ cups granulated sugar

until combined.  Add:

3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt

Beat until smooth.  Add:

1 cup flour

Place in 9x13 inch pan and bake at 350° for 27 minutes.  Remove from oven and top with a mixture of:

14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
2¼ cups shredded coconut

Return to oven and bake 20 more minutes.  Top with chocolate icing.

In microwave, melt:

4 ounces bittersweet chocolate

for 1 minute.  Add:

½ cup whipping cream
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
I have never had anyone refuse one of these.  Mostly folks fight over them. I try to keep a pan of these in my freezer at all times!
