My family enjoys the combination of chocolate and coconut. So I stirred coconut extract into brownie batter and added flaked coconut to the cream cheese filling. These fudgy bars are the tasty result! —Phyllis Perry, Vassar, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat brownie mix, oil, eggs and extract on medium speed until blended (batter will be stiff). Set aside 1 cup for topping.
  2. Spread the remaining batter into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake 10-15 minutes.
  3. For filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, eggs and extracts until smooth. Gradually add confectioner's sugar and mix well. Fold in coconut. Carefully spread over brownies.
  4. Drop reserved batter by teaspoonfuls over filling. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
