Tropical Chocolate Coconut Blondies

I originally saw this recipe over at Women Who Do It All,  and it was posted there by our cute blogging friend Jocelyn, who is the mastermind behind the amazing recipes over at BruCrew Life. You need to head over to her blog right now and see all the mouth-watering recipes she has!! Anyway, when I saw this recipe I knew it was perfect for our “Beach Challenge” over at Wayward Girl’s Crafts. The coconut adds just the right touch and gives it a “tropical” taste. We loved them!!

2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 stick butter, softened
2 tbsp. milk
2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. rum extract
3/4 c. shredded coconut
1-2 c. chocolate chips
4-5 (1.5 oz) bags coconut m&m’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the butter and brown sugar until very creamy. Add the eggs, extract, salt, and baking powder and beat again. Slowly beat in the flour until just combined. Stir the coconut, m&m’s, and chocolate chips in by hand. Spread in a greased 9×13 pan and bake for 22-27 minutes (22 minutes if you like them gooey and a tiny bit undercooked . . . 27 minutes if you like them a little harder and fully cooked).  Let them cool completely before cutting and devouring. (I actually think these these taste better the next day!!).

Thanks Jocelyn for sharing another great recipe!!!

  1. I just made these. The house smells wonderful! I forgot to buy rum extract, so I used 1t dark rum, 1/2t vanilla and 1/2t butterscotch extract. Also did not use coconut M&Ms because I wanted to fool my youngest into thinking there was no coconut (which is why I didn't use coconut extract I had on hand to replace rum extract). Last week I made a version of the Congo bars. You have a great selection.
