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 made this mounds brownies, they were easy and delicious. How do you store these?
Do these need to go in the refrigerator after cooking?
That’s also my question!
This recipe is fantastic! We used to be able to buy a Mounds cake in our local grocery stores but for some reason they no longer bake these. My daughter is a huge fan of this. So glad I ran across this recipe. She is coming this weekend so that will be the biggest test! My husband is already a fan!
This is a favorite in our house!
I’ve made these…huge hit at the office. They were even a bigger hit when I added sliced almonds in with the coconut.
Delicious was the response from these Mounds brownies! I used chocolate chips instead of frosting, and it is an easy recipe and will serve a large gathering. I first found the recipe on facebook.
Is it sweetened coconut?
If anybody makes these let me know. I don’t have much luck making keto recipes they just don’t taste up to par
i have made these for several occasions, absolutely amazing!
Made these today and I’m not sure about the 1 and half cup of poefer sugar. I wanted alot of it didn’t fix that well. There cooling. Hopefully they taste okay.
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.
What a recipe too, I love it looks very cute, I will like too much to prepare and eat too, my children will delight. Excellent recipe, like all of this excellent site.
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.
Does this need to be refrigerated afterwards?
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
These are sweet but I found a dark chocolate icing which toned down the sweetness. They are yummy and a big hit!
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.
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.
I will definitely be making these they sound awesome.
Can you use your one brownie receipe.My husband loves mound bars.
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.
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!
