Chocolate Coconut Bars Recipe

Brownie Base
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Coconut Layer
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup coconut

Frosting
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in cocoa, flour and nuts. Spread in greased 9x13-inch plan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Combine sweetened condensed milk with coconut; spread carefully over brownie crust. Bake an additional 15-18 minutes or until toasty on top. In a small sauce pan, melt chocolate and butter. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Add powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Spread on brownies immediately after removing from oven. When cool, cut into squares. Makes about 36 cookies.
