Coconut Brownies

It was a Tuesday (Community Group night) and we needed dessert, what's a girl to do? Raid the pantry of course! I knew I had a boxed brownie mix on hand and a few other things, but didn't want to go the traditional brownie route. Thus, these delicious treats were born. Be prepared to enter a sugar coma in 3, 2, 1. . .

1 package brownie mix
 3 eggs
 1/4 cup water 
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flaked coconut 
1 cup chocolate chunks (I chopped up Hershey kisses, but chocolate chips would work too!)
 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 
1 cup almonds, chopped

Preheat oven to 350. 
Spray 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray. 
Prepare your favorite brownie mix according to package directions.
The amount of eggs, oil and water included above are common to most prepared brownie mix instructions, but follow your box says
 Bake 16-18 min or until brownie is set.
You are just trying to set the batter, not finish it. 
 Layer coconut and chocolate chunks over brownie base. 
 Drizzle sweetened condensed milk evenly over coconut and chocolate chunks. 
Sprinkle with nuts.
Bake 20-25 minutes.
Cool completely. 

These taste especially yummy with vanilla ice cream:-)
