1 pkg. brownie mix of your choice
(for 9×13 pan), with ingredients called for on box
2 cups sweet or unsweet flaked coconut
12 ounce can Dulce De Leche*
¼ cup evaporated milk
Topping: 1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Prepare brownies in a 9×13 pan according to package directions. Let cool.
On large, rimmed baking sheet, spread out coconut and place in a 350 degree oven until toasted lightly golden, stirring often, about ten minutes.**
While coconut is toasting, place caramel and evaporated milk in a microwave safe bowl or small sauce pot (if melting on stovetop). Heat at 45 second intervals, stirring after each, until just soft enough to blend well.
Stir toasted coconut into caramel mixture until well combined. Place dollops of this all over top of cooled brownies and then spread to ice.
Melt Chocolate Chips in microwave the same way you did the caramel. Once fully melted, allow to cool five minutes before spooning into a large zipper seal bag. Cut just the tip off and make zig zags all over top of coconut mixture. Allow brownies to sit until chocolate is set again and they are completely cool.
