My guilty pleasure is a love for boxed brownies...I know-not what you would expect! But feel free to substitute boxed for this recipe because when is comes to brownies some companies seriously know what they're doing. For those of you wanting to give brownies by scratch a try, visit the recipe below. Whichever version you choose, elevate the flavors by adding a drizzle of caramel and sprinkle on some fresh toasted caramel. Happy Baking :)

Toasting Coconut:

There are a few different methods you can use to toast up your coconut flakes. I prefer using a pan on the stovetop but feel free to give toasting in the oven a try. I find it easier to burn in the oven and I can keep a better eye on the stovetop. All you need to do is pour the coconut contents into a pan over medium heat and stir continuously for about 10 minutes until coconut is toasted evenly.

The last step for this recipe is combining all ingredients together!

Cut your brownies into as many pieces as you like, sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes & drizzle with that warm dreamy caramel sauce. It doesn't get better than that! Unless you throw a scoop of ice cream on make the ultimate brownie sundae :) Enjoy!
