Brownies with Coconut Frosting


          I'm at a lost for words.....This is a very rare thing. I usually can talk about anything.
          This dessert. Yes, this dessert that you see right before your eyes is so good. I mean
            entirely too good. Decadent, rich, delightful, creamy, fudge and YOU. Yes, You
                need to make this and be a super star baker for your friends or loved ones.
                        Get your glass of milk ready and I hope you have the will power
                            not to eat the entire pan. Share and make someone happy.

                                                        Brownies with Coconut Frosting

                                BROWNIES...
                                1 cup of butter, room temperature
                                2 eggs
                                6 ( 1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate or 1 cup semi sweet chips
                                2 cups sugar
                                1 cup all purpose flour

                                1/2 teaspoon salt

                     1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 9 pan.
                     2) In a 3 quart saucepan over very low heat, melt butter and chocolate,
                     stirring the mixture constantly. Remove from heat, and stir the sugar into the

                     mixing well after each, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour and salt, stir into
                     chocolate mixture. Spread batter into pan.
                     3) Bake for 30 minutes or until done.

                                 COCONUT FROSTING...
