Mocha Coconut Creme Brownies

I seriously cannot believe I have waited this long to share these Mocha Coconut Creme Brownies with you. What can I say? Life happens! It was a sad day… we lost our little Wheaten, Maya. She got sick. Real sick. She’s at peace now. Our hearts are sad, but we are ok. She’s not hurting anymore which makes it bearable. There’s the down side of things. But we’ve also had some ups.  We had an amazing visit with my grandparents. I fell in love with pineapple upside down cake and my family had a fabulous train ride. Enjoyed my in-laws company for a few days, along with some fireworks! And to top it off, my almost first grader is home~ which is the best part! I love it when my kids are home and I don’t have to share them with the rest of the world… or at least with the school for the majority of the day :)! We’re up to nothing but fun now! Which means blogging has sort of taken the back seat. But I’m back with something totally super yummy! I promise. Let me introduce you to my inspiration….

Yep, Starbucks Mocha Coconut Creme Frappuccino! Have you had the chance to taste one? If not, do. What are you waiting for? Heaven in a cup. And while their frosty version is amazing, I wanted a brownie version. What do you need to know about these brownies? They are perfect, moist and chewy with a hint of coconut and a hint of coffee. It’s been said that they are “off the hook!” Think you should make them? I do.

Brownies
  1. 2 boxes of Betty Crocker Brownie Mix, either the dark chocolate or the fudge brownie mix
  2. 4 Tablespoons flour
  3. 2/3 cup Coffee-mate Coconut Creme coffee creamer, from the refrigerator section
  4. 2 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee (I used 2 Nescafe's Taster's Choice single serve packets)
  5. 2/3 cup oil
  6. 5 eggs
Coconut Mocha Glaze
  1. 1 cup powdered sugar
  2. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  3. 3 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
  4. 2 Tablespoons Coffee-mate Coconut Creme coffee creamer
  5. 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 9x13 pan. In a large bowl, stir flour into dry brownie mix. Add coconut creamer, instant coffee granules, oil, and eggs and stir just until combined. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for around 50 minutes. I would check after 45 minutes, just to make sure. They are done when a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  2. For the glaze dissolve instant coffee granules in coconut creamer. You may need to heat for 8-12 seconds in the microwave. Stir in vanilla. Whisk in powdered sugar and butter until smooth. Drizzle over slightly cooled brownies. I have a hard time waiting, {gasp} for the brownies to cool all the way, but if you add the glaze too soon, it will melt into the brownies. So do your best and wait a bit.

You’ll be glad you did.
 
Just in case you were wondering about the stars of the show, this is what they look like!

I used two of those packets that you see above in the brownies and opened one for the glaze… I just keep that tucked away for the next batch. Because there will be a next batch, and another, and another, and another…. you get the point.

Oh yeah, what do you think about the new look?

    Oh my goodness … these look like heaven discretly disguised as brownies :)

    Thanks for sharring such an awesome sounding recipe.

    So sorry to hear of Maya passing … that is so hard to loose a pet {they are part of the family!} no matter the circumstance.

    That beautiful cracked glazed top is the icing on the cake, literally. I have a sweet treat linky party on my blog every Friday (3pm) till Monday and I’d love it if you’d come by and link your brownies up. http:/sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com

    Sorry about your dog. It’s always so hard when they go. We lost one of ours 5 years ago and I still miss her.

    These brownies look amazing- you are going to send me on a brownie baking binge between these are the samoa ones. Mocha Coconut Fraps were my favorite drink at Sbucks. I’m sad they don’t always have it anymore it’s now a seasonal drink. Can’t wait to try these.
