Cocoanut Brownies: Vintage Ad & Recipe

Lately I've been enjoying Vintage Chocolate ads and posters, especially when they include recipes. This one for Cocoanut Golden Brownies is from the 1950s. Unfortunately Welch's Cocoanut Bars are no longer made. The recipe says you can't substitute any other bar; however, that's just a 50s advertising ploy. You can substitute a Mounds Bar. If you like a moister brownie, you can add a little more shortening! The recipe calls for butter or margarine--margarine being very popular in the 50s. I only use butter!

I am constantly trying to change up my chocolate banana brownie recipe. Anna from Cookie Madness mentioned your chocolate blog in one of her postings. I found your cocoanut brownies posting. They look delicious! I just purchased coconut and I'm going to mix it into my banana brownies to see what happens. Wish me luck!
