I made this last night, minus the coconut cream since my husband HATES coconut (I know, how could he!) and it was a hit! I couldn't stop eating the brownies.

My food processor, a Hamilton Beach, new at Christmas, has a heck of a time chopping those dates. It sounds like it's going to explode. Maybe I need to cut them up a bit first.

Ooh, yummy! I am looking for ways to use fresh mint, since my neighbor is giving me some mint plants!

btw, young coconuts don't taste like coconut, and my mom (who hates coconut) usually loves whatever I make with the young coconuts :)

This sounds just incredible. One question: How do you get the meat out of regular (not young) coconuts, minus that brown stuff?

I just made this a OMG was it delicious!!! I made it into a strawberry shortcake instead of a trifle, using the brownie as the cake and layering some coconut cream and mashed and sliced strawberries. I didn't feel like waiting for the mint to dry so I just tossed into the food processor in its fresh state. The brownies alone are unbelievable. Thanks for posting this.

Oh, I forgot. Our food processor moves clear across the counter when we chop the dates. I never even thought of chopping the dates. Good tip. If you still want to use the cream, you can use an extra cup of cashews (or pine nuts, or macadamia nuts) in place of the coconut
