Mounds Brownies

These Mounds Brownies taste just like the candy bar. Start with a boxed brownie mix and end with a can of frosting, but the middle is totally homemade.

Somebody messed up. Really. What kind of marketing team sits back and takes a look at a Mounds Bar and an Almond Joy and calls the one with a mound on top of it Almond Joy? THERE’S A MOUND ON TOP OF THE ALMOND JOY!!!

I know- you are thinking I should really calm down about this. I’m not really that jazzed up about it but to tell the truth these are the things I sat around and thought about as a child. Even now as an adult I get the two candies confused. Now you know me a little better. Isn’t that nice?

I am also sharing this recipe over at Dixie Chik Cooks. I hope you’ll stop by and tell her hello too! I actually made this after being inspired from some Halloween candy lying around. We want you to fess up- do you have any leftover Halloween candy?

Random confession: I had to throw out Easter Candy the week before Halloween.

If you don’t want to start with a boxed brownie mix here is my FAVORITE Best-Made-From-Scratch-Brownie Recipe!

    I love coconut and am totally making these this weekend. We have a bar over here in Canada simply called "Coconut". It's to die for. Hard to find so I always snag a gazillion when I am in the city. Think I need a trip to the city. I find the whole Mounds and Almond Joy thing so weird. Makes zero sense. Looking forward to December. I love me some cookies.

    I think you should place an almonds (one for every 2" square) just before you pour your chocolate -then you will have an almond coconut joy brownie. Makes my mouth water.

    KatrinasKitchen — March 4, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    Hmm. That's a great question. (I'm glad you liked them!!) We didn't not refrigerate them however it does contain sweetened condensed milk which says to refrigerate after opening. I don't know! Let me put the question out to my facebook page and let's see what people say…

  53. #
    Angie — March 6, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    I refrigerated them just to be on the safe side, but either put them out in time so that they could come to room temperature or just warmed them up on defrost in the microwave for 30 seconds. And in goes without saying that they are delicious cold right out of the pan. If you did not refrigerate them, about how long did you have them out before they were all gone? Thanks for everything.

    Problem. Making them right now. Can't find unsweetened coconut nor unsweetened condensed milk. So now I don't know what to do about the powdered sugar. Add or not? I went to a couple of stores. I found fat free condensed milk but not the unsweetened. HELP!

  56. #
    KatrinasKitchen — April 27, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    The recipe uses sweetened condensed milk so you're okay there. 🙂 A few other readers have left comments about not fibding unsweetened coconut. Some just omitted the powdered sugar while others reduced. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your taste. Good luck!

    Katrina, is the quantity correct for the coconut? 5 1/3 cups seemed like an awful lot and, when I made these, couldn't manage to get it all to combine with the condensed milk.
    Thanx, Lesley

    I think I am going to try this, only I am going to modify them just a bit. First I am going to freeze them after the coconut mixture is put on the brownies. Then once they are frozen I am going to cut them into squares and dip or drizzle them with tempered chocolate.

      Katrina Bahl — May 14, 2013 at 9:24 am

      Hi Nisa, I’m glad you’re here! I have never had the privilege of baking with fresh coconut so I’m sorry I can’t really offer any wisdom here. I would suggest shredding the coconut and squeezing out any excess coconut milk. From there you can sweeten to taste. Thanks again for stopping by! – Katrina

    I made these but I have a problem!!! I did use the can of sweetened condensed milk, unsweetened coconut (which is in the freezer section, people!) and the powdered sugar. I made them Sunday and followed the directions – I promise I did!! The problem is even in my refrigerator they are a liquidy gooey mess. DELICIOUS, but the condensed milk, coconut mixture is still very liquid. Mind you, this has NOT, I repeat NOT kept us from eating them; they just require a spoon!! Any suggestions? Am I the only one this happened to????

    These are so timely! My husband bought some coconut M&Ms the other day as an incentive for my little one to night potty train. He keeps sneaking them (my husband) and I caught him at it.

    A lady brought these to a recent church function… they were awesome… I had two 🙂

    Im making some for a get together tomorrow, except I like Almond Joy so I’m gonna throw a few almonds on the top before adding the frosting.

    The melted frosting idea Ive been using for years… its the only way I frost cakes and brownies when using commercial frosting. I like the smooth almost fondant like texture it has when cooled down.

      Katrina Bahl — January 30, 2014 at 2:23 pm

      Hmm. I’m not sure. I think the opposite is usually the problem- it can be gooey. Perhaps try adding more milk, or less coconut? I have tested this recipe many times and never had that happen. I’m sorry!

    I have to say that these have earned a place in my “Favorite Recipes” box. They are simply incredible. The middle coconut layer really tastes like you scraped out the center of a Mounds Bar. I’m so impressed & will definitely have to limit how often I make these, because I feel like I could gobble up the whole batch! Lol. Thanks! 🙂

    I don’t know how many times I’ve bit into an Mounds bar and was totally upset that there weren’t alMONDS!

    Very sweet. Not one of my favorite recipes. I followed recipe exactly and it is just too sweet for us.

    What kind of canned frosting did you use because canned frosting is usually yucky and yours doesn’t even look yucky.

    I think you could also do well using a ganache dark chocolate with this over the top of the coconut. Just a thought. Looks great though. I love the mounds candy bars but don’t care to much for the almond joy unless nut is removed…lol.

    Hello, Katrina… a really fab (and classic) combo. (I may have to “Almond Joy-ify” these – with rows of almonds under the icing – when I do give them a whirl. (And I’ll definitely “go ganache” on top.))
    Am curious whether you’ve played with the coconut filling since developing your initial recipe. The idea of sweetened coconut, sweetened condensed milk AND powered sugar has me thinking twice, and I did see at least one other comment to this effect. (Please forgive my not reviewing the entire comment history for previous responses on this point.)
    Thanks… best to you!

    I am lost everyone is looking for unsweetened coconut but the bag you show is sweetened and I don’t see anywhere in the recipe that calls for unsweetened.

    Since mounds are dark chocolate, I used Hershey’s dark chocolate frosting!! Stuck with the fudge brownie, but did consider the dark chocolate brownie also! Must confess, I snitched a corner before it was completely cooled and set! YUM!!

    So so good! Easy! I added some sliced almonds to the coconut mixture and used Betty Crocker’s Almond Joy flavored chocolate frosting. Don’t hesitate to make these!

    My daughter made these for me for Fathers Day. So good, I’m in love again. Can’t wait to put almonds under the icing and have Almond Joy brownies because we all know “Almond Joy ‘s got nuts Mounds don’t “. Thanks for postin the recipe, I now have another favorite request on my special request days.

    Katrina, I’m confused. Your photo attachment shows sweetened coconut, but everyone is looking for unsweetened in the stores, Which one does thus yummy looking dessert call for… Sweetened or unsweetened? Thanks for answering, making for a birthday party this week for a Mounds lover.

    Hi, I was wondering if I can make these the day before I need them? (if so should they be refrigerated due to the sweetened condensed milk or left out on the counter over night?… or should I make them the day of? Thank you.

    These are sweet but I found a dark chocolate icing which toned down the sweetness. They are yummy and a big hit!

    I’m trying this right now, I decided to substitute coconut oil for the veggie oil. I think it’s going to be amazing cause the batter (yes I taste test raw batter) and it was
    incredible already!

    Does this need to be refrigerated afterwards?

    I have made these several times. I followed the recipe exactly and they come out perfect. Simple Easy Delicious
    Occasionally I add pecans to the brownie mix.

    I made these a bit different because I was not sure the frosting on top would work. I put the brownie mix in small/mini cupcake tins and regular size cupcake tins. When they were almost done baking I depressed the middle of each using whatever you have (I used a pestle from my mortar and pestle set) and let the brownies bake a smidge longer. Although I did grease the sides and the bottom of the tins I still had to use a knife to remove but they came out pretty nice. I scooped the coconut into each brownie depression and then melted chocolate (dark chocolate) and either swirled a nice coating of chocolate on top or I spooned some on, covering the top completely. Both ways worked. I put them in the freezer for ten minutes for the chocolate to harden, then put them in individual cupcake papers and they looked fabulous when served. The mini ones were great – 2 bites. Very rich…must have coffee or milk when eating one.
