Chocolate Chip Coconut Fudge Bars

I combined a couple of my favorite recipes today, yummy!

Chocolate Chip Coconut Fudge Bars

Chocolate Chip Coconut Base & Topping
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
2¹/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut

Fudge Filling
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°. With electric mixer, in large bowl cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in mini chocolate chips and coconut. Press 3/4 of dough into sprayed 15″x10″ baking sheet pan (I use my fingers sprayed with nonstick spray). Set aside and prepare the fudge filling.

In a small saucepan, stir together sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Heat over low to medium-low heat just until chips are melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and walnuts. Mixture will be thick. Drop by spoonfuls over dough in pan. Evenly spread fudge filling over entire dough surface. Using your hands sprayed with nonstick spray, drop remaining 1/4 chocolate chip coconut dough by little bits evenly over surface of the fudge filling. Press down just a little to flatten dough bits. Bake 25 minutes. Remove and cool completely to cut into clean squares. Oh course, cut and eat sooner if you can’t wait!

Crustless Coconut Custard Pie

So easy and delicious. A quick dessert to make for pop-in guests or add to your holiday menu.

Crustless Coconut Custard Pie

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1½ cups water
1/3 cup baking mix (Bisquick or the like)
3 eggs
1/4 cup butter, softened
1½ tsp vanilla
1 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350°. In blender, combine sweetened condensed milk, water, baking mix, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Blend on low speed 3 minutes. Pour into sprayed 9″ deep dish or 10″ pie plate; let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle coconut evenly over top. Bake 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted near edge comes out clean (will still be a bit jiggly in the center but firms up as it cools). Serve warm or cooled. A big dollop of sweet whipped cream on top would be great! Refrigerate leftovers.

Ultimate Turtle Brownies

Not your everyday brownies…but should be!

Ultimate Turtle Brownies

1 (15.25 oz) box chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1 cup each white chips, milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
32 Kraft caramels, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 13″x9″ baking pan with nonstick spray. Combine cake mix, oil, and eggs. Mix in all the chips. Press half of the mixture into bottom of prepared baking pan (will be a thin layer). Bake 10 minutes.

While baking, in medium saucepan, combine butter, sweetened condensed milk, and caramels. Heat over medium-low heat until melted and smooth (stir constantly). Pour over partially baked brownies in baking pan. Top with remaining brownie mixture, sprinkle over caramel mixture with your fingers (a bit messy) to make an even layer. Brownie mixture will not totally cover the caramel mixture, pat down a bit, it will spread and bake up nicely. Return to oven and bake 25-30 minutes. Remove, cool 20 minutes and run knife around edges. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Recipe found at allfood.recipes.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Brownies

A cup of Mexican hot chocolate, the delicious combination of chocolate and cinnamon. Here is something I came up with to use this flavor combination. A little chewy, a little fudgy, a little cinnamony. These bars are muy bueno!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Brownies

1 box (for 9×13 pan) brownie mix
2 cups oats (I used old fashioned)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup cinnamon chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 9″x13″ pan liberally with non-stick spray. In large bowl, stir together dry brownie mix, oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in melted butter until evenly distributed. Press 3 cups of crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven, pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crust getting close to edge but try not to touch if possible. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon chips and chocolate chips. Sprinkle remaining crust mixture evenly over chips and press down lightly. Bake for 20-22 more minutes, will be a bit giggly as it comes from the oven but will set up as it cools. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
