These brownies are DELISH and super great as a cheeky dessert if you're having that chocolate craving! They're gooey, fudgey and even really easy for kids to make.

Makes: 9 
2 Tablespoons of desiccated coconut
125g butter (unsalted)
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup cacao powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 Tsp baking powder
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup chocolate spread (or peanut butter, any nut spread) 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter on a medium heat. Once all butter has melted, stir in the sugar, cacao and the vanilla essence.
  3. Remove from heat and leave to cool for five minutes. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add in eggs (all parts!) and ensure it has mixed through throughly.
  5. Sift the flour into the bowl along with the baking powder.
  6. Mix throughly, to ensure there are no big clumps of flour. Id recommend using a whisk here to really mix it through.
  7. Working quickly, line a small, deep baking dish with baking paper. Pour half the mixture into the dish and spread it from edge to edge.
  8. Using the choc spread, spread lightly over the brownie mixture (or do tiny dollops everywhere!).
  9. Pour the remaining brownie mixture over the top and spread evenly. Sprinkle coconut over the top.
  10. Place into the oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  11. Poking a fork through the middle of the brownie will tell you if its ready! If it comes out clean its ready, if it comes out dirty, leave it for a few more minutes!
  12. Cut up into bite sized pieces and eat!
