Growing up, I was never a fan of coconut - but as I have gotten older (and wiser), I seriously put it in everything! These Almond Joy bars have a delicious graham cracker crust, creamy coconut filling, and a chocolaty-almond topping. They are absolutely divine - and they are best served with a glass of ice-cold milk. ;) Enjoy!

Almond Joy Bars:
Ingredients:
2 cups graham crackers, finely crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed mik
2 cups coconut
2 cups chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
1/2 cup almonds, chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine crushed graham crackers, melted butter, and sugar. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9x9 pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

Combine the coconut and condensed milk. Spread over the baked crust, and return to the oven for 15 more minutes (just until the coconut starts to get a little brown.

Melt the chocolate chips (it will be less lumpy if you add a 1/2 Tablespoon of vegetable oil or shortening), and pour them on top. Before the chocolate chips harden, sprinkle your almonds on top. If you need the top to cool faster, you can stick it in the fridge for about 20 minutes to speed up the process.

    Hi..I tried these..here are a few suggestions. I used sweetened coconut..the bars were too sweet…so there is not need for the 1/4 C sugar. It took a long time in the refrigerator to firm up the bar and the cutting was a bit difficult. Any tips? Overall a nice dessert bar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I just tried making these and the coconut mixture was too runny and sticky and too sweet.. I made them over again and baked the graham cracker crust first without sugar for 30 mins. Then I mixed 1/2 can of the condensed milk with 2 cups of powdered sugar and added the coconut. I let the graham cracker crust cool and then put the coconut mixture on top. Then I put the chocolate chips on top and placed it back in the oven for 5 mins just to melt the chocolate. I had much better results the second time. Thanks for the recipe anyway!!!
