Mounds Brownies

Sorry, it has been forever! I am 23 weeks prego with baby #3 and sometimes new food hasn't sounded good so I revert back to old dinners that I have already blogged about :) But I have been snapping pictures of new yummy meals lately so now I can share them with you! This brownie is so yummy and rich! If you like coconut you will love this!


Brownies: (you can use a 8x8 boxed mix for the brownies to cut back on time)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoon water
1 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
2/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups coconut
3/4 can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup milk
1/2 cup marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a medium saucepan combine sugar applesauce and water until combined and just comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Add eggs and beat until well blended.
3.Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to chocolate mixture and stir until blended. Add in vanilla. Pour 1/2 the mixture into a greased 8x8 pan.
4. Combine the coconut, 3/4 can of sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. Spread carefully over the brownies and top with remaining browning batter. Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
5. Let our brownies cool for about 20 minutes and while they cool prepare frosting. In a saucepan cook the sugar and milk until sugar is dissolved. Add in the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Cook and stir until melted. Remove from heat and add in vanilla. Let frosting cool for about 20 minutes to thicken up. Pour over brownies and spread to cover. Grab a glass of milk and dig in!
