This Almond Joy Brownie Bites Recipe from Bakingdom is something I accidentally stumbled across this morning while looking for some brownie variations. Because everyone in my house (except for me) absolutely loves coconut, I knew we had to make them! I like to make desserts with coconut in them, because that means I won't eat them. Yay weight loss! ;)

Because my 12 year old, Nell, wanted to bake these entirely by herself, we made the recipe a bit simpler by using a box mix for brownies. It saves a lot of time, a few dishes, and some measuring, too – and still tastes amazing.

Almond Joy Brownie Bites Recipe


Brownie Mix (plus everything it calls for on the back of the box)
2 1/2 sweetened coconut
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
almond slivers

For brownies:

Prepare brownies as directed on package. You can use a brownie pan, cupcake tin, or a mini loaf pan like we did. Either way, be sure to prepare the pan properly by spraying it.

Chop the chocolate and place it in a medium mixing bowl.

Bring the heavy cream to a soft boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate, and whisk until cream and chocolate are smooth and shiny.

Nell baked the brownies in the mini loaf pan, then allowed them to cool while preparing the coconut filling and ganache. Once the brownies were cool, she pressed the coconut mixture into the pan, on top of the brownies. She then put the pan in the freezer to set the coconut filling. When they were cool enough, she used a butter knife to loosen the edge of the brownies and remove them from the pan. She then drizzled chocolate ganache on top of the brownies, added a sprinkle of coconut, and a few slivers of almonds. (Chill before serving.)
