"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

3 sticks margarine (I like Fleischmann's)

2 c. sugar
4 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa
pinch of salt

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1 c. chopped nuts

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 c. coconut

4 Tbsp. cocoa
1 lb. confectioners' sugar
1/4 c. milk (more, if needed)
4 Tbsp. margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla


Melt margarine in a medium saucepan. Add sugar, cocoa, flour, salt, eggs and nuts. Mix well with a spoon. Pour into a broiler pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake 15-20 minutes in a 300 preheated oven (just until set). Do not over bake.

Combine sweetened condensed milk and coconut. Spread over hot brownies. Return to oven and bake 10-15 minutes or until light brown.

FROSTING: Beat cocoa, powdered sugar, margarine and vanilla until smooth. Spread on hot brownies. Allow to cool before cutting. Refrigerate until time to serve.

The lady who gave me the recipe said Save-A-Lot brand of sweetened condensed milk works best and that is what I have always used.
