  • 1 & 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped toasted pecans (may substitute walnuts as pictured above)
  • 1/2 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup English toffee bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar and cocoa. Add the butter and pulse just until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of a well-greased 13x9" baking dish. Bake on center rack at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.

While crust is baking, combine condensed milk, vanilla extract and 1 cup of chocolate chips in heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook over low-medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth. When crust has cooked for 10 minutes, remove from oven and pour chocolate mixture directly over crust, spreading gently with a spatula if necessary. Sprinkle top with coconut, nuts, toffee bits and remaining chocolate chips. Press down to set, and return brownies to oven to continue baking at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven, allow to cool, and cut into squares of desired size.
