Coconut Macroon brownies

Brownies.... who doesn't love brownies..all different types.. plain, with M & M's, peanut butter, w/ Heath bars I could go on and on and on....

Coconut macroons.. I love, love, love anything coconut.. and make it into a cookie I am totally in.. I was wanting some brownies the other day, and also wanting some coconut macroons... It was a complete toss up, and then it dawned on me why don't I come up with a recipe to combine them.. viola this was the end result and can I say absolutely delicious!! My step-son who hates coconut loved these.  My little guy Jackson said mommy can you make these every day?  I am like no buddy but I will make these again.  6 year olds, so funny... love that boy!!!

This recipe starts with your favorite brand of brownie mix.  Just make sure the package says to cook it in a 13x9 pan (if using the kind that cooks in a 8x8 pan, just use 2 of those brownie mixes, doubling the eggs, water and oil.

Try these today, you will love them, and as always enjoy.
