Chocolate Coconut Blondies

on

HAPPY GRADUATION DAVID!!!!

On that note….

Imagine a blondie infused with bittersweet dark chocolate and coconut. You probably could have guessed that from the title, but the title is so boring compared to the rich goodness that this recipe offers. Next time I would either double the batter or cut down on the chocolate since it’s so chocolatey, you kind of lose the blondie flavors. But that’s next time, for now this is a gooey, blondie delight!

    6. While the blondies are cooking, combine the chocolate chunks and butter in a small, heatproof bowl. Microwave in 25-second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted and smooth.
    7. Once bars are cool, drizzle chocolate over into whatever pattern you like. Wait another few minutes before sprinkling with additional shredded coconut. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

Voila! Enjoy with ice cream or a glass of milk
