Salted Caramel Coconut topping

Samoan Brownie on a white plate

This is one very yummy topping for brownies, or a myriad of other sweet treats. I call it Salted Caramel Coconut Topping. I used this topping over one of my Brownie Recipes, and the crowd went wild.  Actually, they didn’t, but I did get quite a few people telling me it was absolutely delicious, so I thought I’d share it with you.

Chef tip – Use this topping to turn Bec’s brownies into the amazing Samoa Brownies.

Cuisine American
Servings 16
Method Conventional


  • 3 cups Flaked Coconut big flakes look and react well
  • 250 g Sugar
  • 180 g Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 105 g Water
  • 215 g Corn Syrup
  • 100 g Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tsp Murra Valley Pink Sea Salt


  • Combine the water, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup and vanilla bean (if you are using one) into a heavy bottom saucepan and cook to 110°c while stirring to prevent burning on the base.
  • Once your temp reaches 110°c add the butter and continue cooking to 118°c whilst stirring. Yep it does seem to take ages. 😉
  • Once you have 118°c remove the vanilla bean or if you are using extract add it now along with the salt.
  • Cool for 5 minutes in the pot and then add the coconut.
  • Gently layer the caramel over a cooled brownie all the way to the edges. Don’t squash it down or it will be a hard toffee that’s difficult to cut. I like to grab a fork while it’s still hot and fluff it up before it sets.
