Last week I was up early pinning away on Pinterest when I realized that I just happened to have all the necessary ingredients on hand to make these brownies. I was so inspired by this little twist of fate that I decided to make the brownies before work and bring them in fresh, warm, and delicious to my coworkers. I made a few changes though, just for fun.
1.5 c. sugar
3.4 c. flour
3/4 c. cocoa powder
3/4 c. butter, melted
1/2 tsp. salt (for unsalted butter)
3/4 c. coconut flakes
–extra coconut flakes
Combine sugar, flour, cocoa, eggs, and melted butter and stir until smooth. Mix in the coconut flakes. In a muffin pan lined with muffin paper cups, pour in batter so that each cup is approximately 3/4 or just a bit more full. Bake at 325° for about 35 minutes (I used the toothpick test to be sure). When the cupcakes are finished, allow to cool for a few minutes, then ice with Nutella and sprinkle some coconut flakes on top.
I’m not generally a brownie person, but these were absolutely delicious.
