Some may argue that brownies are nearly perfect as it is, even box mix brownies.  And I can’t argue with that.  But sometimes you want a little something different.

Awhile back I posted a recipe for Coconut Brownies. This is a variation on that theme, for use with a boxed brownie mix.  It’s very simple: stir in 1 teaspoon coconut extract with the liquid ingredients  (oil, egg, etc.) and after mixing the wet ingredients and the mix , fold in 3/4 c. shredded coconut.

Sprinkle another 1/8 to 1/4 cup coconut on top for fancy (and to warn non-coconut lovers), and bake as the package directs.

Mmmm.  Tastes like Mounds bars. A sprinkle of almonds on top and in the mix might make it Almond Joy.
