What do you get when you cross a brownie with coconut ice and caramel? This Coconut Caramel Brownie Pie.
Over-the-top decadent, indulgent, gooey, fudgy, sweet, rich and one showstopping dessert!
I originally made this for a competition by Milly’s Kitchen I came across on Facebook. Although I didn’t win, the end result and recipe that came from this was too good and unique not to share so here we are.
I adapted the brownie recipe they provided by Annabelle Langbein and completely mixed it up.
First we have the indulgent, fudgy, rich, dark chocolate brownie with TWO types of chocolate chips! So really we can call this a triple chocolate brownie.
We spread half of the brownie batter into the base of a pie pan. Top that with a coconut mixture inspired by my Coconut Ice. (It’s very similar to the inside of a bounty bar). Cover the coconut mixture in lashings of the buttery caramel filling and top that with the remaining brownie mixture before baking to perfection.
This can be enjoyed two ways. One is to wait for the brownie to chill completely and slice into nice and tidy slices to see the layers and serve for dessert or have with a coffee. Option two is to place a scoop of ice cream on top, grab a spoon and dig right into the warm, ooey gooey chocolate, coconut, caramel center! The choice is yours. Can you guess my pick of the two?
