I love experimenting with new recipes.  In fact, it's seldom that I make the same thing twice, especially when it's dessert.  The exception would be the white chocolate chex mix (affectionately called "crack" by friends) and Christmas goodies.   Since I had 4 events in less than a week that required bringing something sweet, I pursued adventures in brownies.   I have no problem using the basic brownie mix on sale at the store and then modifying it.   I'm also a big fan of All Recipes online.   I like to read the user reviews and then modify recipes as needed.   Of the 4 treats I made, two were especially scrumptious and I will share them with you.

Coconut Macaroon Brownies
Basically I just used the coconut filling in this recipe and rather than making the brownies from scratch, made them from a mix (for 9x13 pan) and instead baked them in a 9x9 pan which made them thick which worked well with the filling.  Yum!

Butterscotch Blondies
I followed this recipe exactly, although cooking at altitude, I baked it a few minutes longer.  They hold their shape really well, so after cooling in the fridge I cut these into triangles for a different appearance.  Really rich...and delicious.
