Almond Joy Bars

{Almond Joy Bars}

My favorite candy bar is an almond joy probably because I love coconut everything. These were really easy to make even the graham cracker crust.

 {Some of the things you need}

{Crushing the graham crackers for the crust}

{Pouring condensed milk to the coconut flakes}

{Mix graham crackers with butter and sugar and bake}

{Add coconut mixture}

{Add toasted almonds on top of coconut mix}

{Then you add chocolate chips}

{I cut a huge piece for myself}

Ingredients

Crust: 2 cups crushed graham crackers | 1/2 cup sugar | 2/3 cup melted butter

Filling: 3 cups flaked coconut | 2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk | 1 1/2 cups toasted almonds

Topping: 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips


Directions
 
  • Melt butter, stir in sugar and graham crackers until all worked in together.
  • Pat in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  • while the crust is baking, mix the sweetened condensed milk with the coconut until all the coconut is incorporated with the sweetened condensed milk.
  • Toast almonds then chop the almonds up.
  • When the crust is out of the oven, spread filling over the crust. Once the filling is spread, sprinkle the toasted almonds over the filling.
  • Bake the bars for 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Once you take the bars out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bars and return to oven for a few minutes until the chips are melted enough to spread with a knife.
