I’m not a huge brownie lover so I don’t make them very often. However, after making and tasting these Magic Coconut Brownie Bars with Macadamia Nuts, that’s all going to change!Magic Coconut Brownie Bars with Macadamia Nuts - www.kudoskitchenbyrenee.com

What I like best about these Magic Coconut Brownie Bars is that they can be made with either your favorite “scratch” brownie recipe or from your favorite box mix.

For this particular post, I used the Ghiradelli brownie box mix just to keep it simple and less intimidating. Plus, if you’re in a pinch for time, the box brownie mix is definitely the way to go!

The key to making these Magic Coconut Brownie Bars with Macadamia Nuts extra moist and delicious is to remove the brownies from the oven just after they’ve baked about half way. The outer rim of the brownies will look almost set and ready, but the inside of the brownies will still be undercooked and pudding-like.

Remove the partially cooked brownies from the oven, and top them with flaked coconut, semi-sweet chocolate chips, macadamia nuts and then drizzle the entire surface of the pan with a can of sweetened condensed milk. For those of you who eat sweetened condensed milk out of the can with a spoon (you know who you are), this is where the magic actually happens!

  1. LOVE these and I'd gobble them up! Not one of my siblings will put anything coconut in their mouths except me…makes me wonder if a coconut tragedy happened in out childhood that we don't remember lol!

  2. These bars wouldn't last long in my house! YUM!

  3. These would definitely not last in our house! Looks delicious.

  4. Magic indeed! I really love the addition of macadamia nuts. I make something similar around the holidays but haven't used macadamias. I think I'll try your version since I love those!

  5. I love the idea of combing magic bars and brownies! How decadent!

  6. I think that boxed brownie mixes are one of the best bargains in the grocery store. They taste just as good, if not better, than homemade and are a huge time saver. Dressed up like this – wow – who wouldn't love them!!!

  7. WOW – these look amazing! I'd definitely double the recipe too – these will surely get eaten very quickly!

  8. I've never had a magic bar before would you believe that? It's because I really don't like coconut but I totally see making these without coconut (and extra macadamias because yum).
