Chocolate Coconut Brownies

Triple Choc and Coconut Brownie

*This recipe was originally published in February 2012.  After the third rainy day of school holidays and my craft repertoire worn out we did some baking this afternoon. The post has been republished as we made some alterations to the recipe and updated the format. This is our improved recipe, perfect to light up  a rainy, dreary day.  

The recipe was originally inspired by one I tore from a Delicious Magazine called “White Chocolate & Almond Blondies” (author and date unknown).
