Cake Art Brownies with Walnuts and Coconut

One of my best friends from California, Erica, sent me package which included an 8 inch circular pan and some INCREDIBLE brownie mix from her mom's store. Erica's mom, Susan, has a lovely cake art supplies store in San Rafael, California called Cake Art Supplies. It has everything from pans and rolling pins, to detailed cake toppers and brownie mix! I was the fortunate recipient of the brownie mix. You can see everything the store has on it's website. They even have macaroon mix and carrot cake mix! I had three friends coming over for dinner and I decided to make these brownies and add in walnuts and coconut. The brownies were divine. Moist and slightly gooey on the inside, a little bit thicker on the outside. Four people polished off the entire brownie pan...so much for bringing leftovers to work!

Cake Art Brownies with Walnuts and Coconut

1 lb brownie mix from Cake Art Supplies...(Gasp! we finished 1lb of brownies?!)
3 oz plus 1 tablespoon water
3 oz oil (I used canola oil)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried coconut flakes

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the water and brownie mix for 1 minute.
2. Add oil and mix for a few minutes. Stir in walnuts and coconut. Pour batter into an 8x8 pan. Bake for 22-25 minutes. (While brownies are baking run and get milk or ice cream, or both).
