Chocolate Coconut Brownies

My kids love brownies. I love brownies too. I like to try out different variations each time I make them, sometimes inspired by something I have seen elsewhere, sometimes inspired by what is in the cupboard when the mood strikes. This was one of the latter occasions – I actually bought the desiccated coconut with the intention of making a coconut cake, but spotted the bag when in a brownie mood, so in it went! They were really delicious – the coconut adds texture as much as flavour (in fact they don’t taste overly coconutty at all!) – resulting in a deliciously squidgy chocolate coconut brownie with a flavour almost like chocolate fudge cake.

These were so good, I will definitely be making them again. They kept well for a couple of days in a tin, and may well have kept for a day or two longer before starting to dry out – but we had eaten them all by then. What is your favourite brownie addition?
