Mounds Brownies

Some times you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.  Sometimes you feel like coconut.  I never do.  My parents however, LOVE anything with coconut.  I feel obligated to the cooking public to provide you with a blog that does not discriminate against foods I do not like.  Whenever a special occasion rolls around at my parent's house, I try to use a recipe that includes coconut.  They get a treat they like, I don't have to eat it, I share the recipe with you guys.  Everyone wins!  Recently they celebrated their anniversary so I took them a big platter of Mounds Brownies.  They were very simple to make, and looked gorgeous on the platter.  From what I hear they were very rich and very tasty.  I'll leave that for my parents and you all to decide.  Meanwhile, I'll remain coconut-free.  But I vow to bring you a tasty coconut recipe every now and then!
