Fudgy Coconut Brownies with White Chocolate Chunks and an Oreo Crust

  • Author: Kelly


Dense, fudgy coconut brownies packed with chunks of chocolate covered coconut candy bars and white chocolate on an Oreo cookie crust.



For the Oreo cookie crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground Oreo cookie crumbs, 17 cookies (6.75oz, 191g)
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter (2oz, 57g)

For the brownie:

  • 1 cup butter, melted and cooled (8oz, 227g)
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled (113g)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 ¾ cups granulated sugar (12.25oz, 347g)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (5oz, 142g)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened alkalized cocoa powder (11g)
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 6 bars (1.75 ounces each) chocolate covered coconut candy (such as Mounds, Almond Joy, or Bounty), cut into ½-inch chunks (298g)
  • 3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut (6.35oz, 180g)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips or chunks (6oz, 170g)


For the Oreo cookie base:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare an 8 inch by 8 inch baking pan, see note, and spray the inside with cooking spray.
  3. Combine the Oreo cookie crumbs and the melted butter. Press into the bottom of baking pan.
  4. Bake in 350 degree F oven for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool slightly while preparing brownie batter.

For the brownie:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until blended.
  2. Add cooled melted butter and melted chocolate and whisk to combine.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in bowl and sift over chocolate mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula just until combined. Do not over mix.
  4. Add coconut, candy bar chunks, and white chocolate chunks and stir gently to combine.
  5. Pour into baking pan and smooth the top.
  6. Bake in 350 degree F oven until set, about 30 minutes. Be careful not to overbake or the brownies will not be fudgy. They should be slightly underdone.


* I use a baking pan with a removable bottom which comes in handy for easily and cleanly removing brownies and bars from the pan. I line only the bottom with a square of baking parchment.

* If you don't have a removable bottom pan, you can line the baking pan with aluminum foil with the edges overhanging the pan so that the brownie lifts out neatly.
