Make The Brownies:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder until smooth and glossy. Whisk in both sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla, stirring until fully incorporated. Switch to a wooden spoon and stir in the dry ingredients.
  3. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-28 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

  1. Once brownies and frosting have cooled to room temperature, spread frosting evenly on top of brownies. Refrigerate for at least an hour or until frosting is fully set.


*If you’re in a rush, you can also just use any regular-size box brownie mix!

**Finely shredded coconut can usually be found in the natural foods bulk section of most grocery stores. If you can’t find any, the regular sweetened shredded kind will work too!
