Lately, I’ve had an obsession with coconut milk. If it’s up to me, every recipe can somehow incorporate coconut milk. It’s creamy and fabulous and I love the subtle coconut flavor it adds to dishes. I’ve been dying to create a chocolatey dish with coconut milk and this was a homerun! These brownies are incredibly rich and fudgy- make sure you have a full carton of milk or ice cream before making them. Don’t say I didn’t give you fair warning.
 
And just to prove the richness point, start right off the bat by melting some butter.

Then add the sugar and chocolate chips. You could easily stop here and just inhale this mixture, but it’s worth it to keep going.

While the brownies are cooling, whip up the frosting. I also, of course, incorporated coconut milk into this! Whip some butter, add vanilla and coconut milk, followed by cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Super simple.

Let the brownies cool completely before frosting them! I got super impatient during this process and got a little creative. I don’t think it helped much.
