– Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

**3. Bake the Brownies:**
– Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly.
– Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
– Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan.

**4. Make the Coconut Filling:**
– In a bowl, combine the shredded coconut and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until well combined.

**5. Assemble the Brownies:**
– Once the brownies are completely cool, spread the coconut filling evenly over the top.

**6. Make the Chocolate Topping:**
– In a heatproof bowl, combine the chocolate chips and heavy cream.
– Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.

**7. Finish the Brownies:**
– Pour the chocolate topping over the coconut layer, spreading it evenly.
– Allow the chocolate to set slightly.

**8. Chill and Serve:**
– Refrigerate the brownies for at least 1-2 hours to allow everything to set.
