I tried a new recipe today. From the Brownie Diet Cook Book.
It came out well. Although when I make them again, I'd reduce the amount of coconut. I found that using the whole bag was over powering. I also left out the almonds that were supposed to be in the batter since Rosebud would probably be eating some. I sprinkled a few almonds on top. The actual brownies and icing came out really good.
